philosophy

Photography is poetry written with light on a shadowed canvas of human emotions.
It's not about gear, lenses and technical aspects. It's everything You see, everything You feel and everything You want to remember. I think it's all about beig yourself and creating a story or tell a story You want to tell about people. That's what I do.

Photographs are just images, but images that affect us emotionally. Images force us to see the world in a different way. In my work love to explore. Places. People. Emotions between them. I love to find those little moments between other moments. Remember them and watch for world respond.

Why monochrome? Because it's timeless. Because that's the way I want to tell a story.
Black and white images help us to concentrate about core of the scene. It's avoiding distractions.
It looks beautiful on fine-art paper I print Your story. It looks amazing in book.
It's also beacuse that's not to easy to make a good and interesting black and white image.
And I like challenges. A lot.

I'm inspired by movies like Ida orz Cold War by Pawel Pawlikowski.
Noir movies, Stanley Kubrick, Jim Jarmush. All of those artists are perfect storytellers and image magicians.
