about:

the camera has been a friend throughout the happy and the lonely times, during the crazy years of traveling around the globe and the ordinary days too. it has always been a firm, familiar ground under my fingers, reassuring me once I was getting lost in the places i visited for the first time and didn’t know anything about. and it has remained a friend too, packed along with the lunch, being almost like a hope for a day

today i will see something special

it has never failed me and neither have my eyes.

through my photography i try to communicate the moment, the special feeling of the place and situation that only happens here and now, the decisive moment when the shutter speed makes familiar click, picture revealing itself to the patient observer.

i’m trying to u n d e r s t a n d the things that get easily overlooked and see the stories lost in everyday.

“i believe that, through the act of living, the discovery of oneself is made concurrently with the discovery of the world around us, which can mould us, but which can also be affected by us. A balance must be established between these two worlds – the one inside us and the one outside us. As the result of a constant reciprocal process, both these worlds come to form a single one. And it is the world that we must communicate.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson
