Born in 1979. Since early age interested in fact that the human sees the space in a manner perhaps not available to other beings. This special ability relates to noticing the symbolic dimension of reality. Subjectively, the flirtation of light and mind has always intrigued him the most, as well as the relation: man-nature-sacred. Mostly focused on landscape (as the most open physical and semantic field) but does not avoid any other -scapes. He photographs using intuition, imagination and hope. Additional equipment is important to him only if it works. Reading the famous phrase “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy” is pleased that in the 21st century there are still plenty of them. You are cordially invited to participate in this virtual tour.
