My works theme is self-documentation.I photograph people of my environment at certain times when I feel that this moment needs to be captured.
Although, there are cases where I stage a photographin order to portray what I need to express at that time of my life. I find interest in self-portraits and depicting situations that I share with others.
In order for me to photograph something or someone, there has to be a sense of connection. Creating an atmosphere between them and me so the final outcome will display parts of us. A mix of selves into one image.
The element of nude in the photographs is very intense. Considering the body as well as the soul, I believe that when people are exposing their naked body in my pictures, they are exposing an inner part of themselves.
Moreover, I am also interested in animals as well as discovering unusual places. I always tend to interpret personal feelings by depicting non – human subjects. Though no matter the subject I always feel that my work is about expressing certain emotions.
