On how i work.

I think photography is not about taking pictures. It is mainly about yourself. How you feel, your thoughts and your identity. 

No, I’m not talking about photojournalism, where one needs to forgo oneself and focus on an issue. I’m talking about personal, private documentary; about finding a vital connection with your subjects. It’s a very self-centered and personal experience, much like a visual diary. Probably the only way to bring out real images. That’s why photographs are only projected expressions; the photography process is solely about relations, about human compassion.

One might disagree but that is how I’d like to work.
