Artist’s Statement:

I am a man who has found the balance between the time of tranquillity and time of action. I gain strength and calmness from my work. My photography is a reflection of my choices and experiences. I’m not really interested in documenting the scenes and places. I want my work to express my feelings and my own vision.  I constantly discover places which harmonize with my creativeness

I used to photograph in colour. But colour has disappeared from most of my artistic work. Shadows and lights, contrasts and darkness are much more multidimensional and allow me to express more than colours. I used to photograph wild nature only. But now I’m fascinated by the old buildings – ruined castles and churches, which became part of the landscape. Spirit of nature exists in these objects.

What is important is that every step of creating the image is performed by me. Taking picture, working in the digital darkroom, printing, framing… I know the final result before I even press the shutter, but all the elements are essential components of the entire work. I really care about my technical skills. I have to be sure that I can depend on my knowledge and with subtle movements I can adapt reality from the pure raw file to my personal vision.
