I regard photography as a mirror – reflecting my inner world.
I am interested in the visual language – shared by all visual arts.
I am not interested in the thing itself.
I search for abstract and minimalism.
Abstract for me, is getting as further from the thing itself, but always leave a hint for life.
As for my idea of minimalism – less is impossible and more is redundant.
Just like it is done in the Japanese tradition – saying a lot in a few words.
My photographs are often mistaken for paintings.
My inspiration is derived and influenced by both painters (i.e. Morandi) and photographers (i.e. Sugimoto).
