I like to experiment with both digital and film photography. Over the years my interest was drifting between street or urban subjects and landscapes. Through human geography and anthropology of place I made a full journey exploring a sense of space. My personal favourites are large panoramas, landscapes and skylines. They often depict what privilege of having space is, but above all they give the sense of it’s value by showing their beauty. Our landscapes can say a lot about ourselves they influence lives much more than anything else. They have the ultimate power above humanity and all living creatures. What we often forget is that even in these fully urbanised times, we are most dependant on them as they shape the economics, demography and many other vital parts of our existence.
When taking those photographs I often think about how time and space are continuously defined by each other and only accessible at that point. I simply enjoy capturing those moments. In my view travelling and photography together can create that unique formula which may express how it feels to have the freedom of chosing to be in that particular time and space juncture. When looking at pictures like that I can feel how it is flying over the sea or climbing the top of the mountain and taking a deep breath full of pain of a journey and joy of accomplishment.
Hope you can feel that too.
“The photograph is literally an emanation of the referent. From a real body, which was there, proceed radiations which ultimately touch me, who am here; the duration of the transmission is insignificant; the photograph of the missing being, as Sontag says, will touch me like the delayed rays of a star.”
