Openning the mind to the ideas -back to childhood, fun, ease, release

“When you have nothing, the imagination works twice. It’s like a muscle. “- Luc Besson. In one of the interviews, Luc Besson, the creator of the Great Blue, Nikita, Leon The Processional, recalled his childhood. He walked around the city and thought up games because he did not have toys. He invented different stories, wandering the streets. This is how the stories were created and the heroes were born. Openness, ease, fun, putting aside both thoughts, one that maybe “I can not”, and second that perhaps “I already know everything”, open the mind to new ideas that lie dormant in our imagination.

photos help to express in words what we feel and experience

Photos help us to express ourselves

Sometimes it is difficult to express in words what we feel and experience. Sometimes it is easier to just show it, saying for example: “I feel now like this woman in the picture” and thanks to that I can unblock a further story.

Photos enable us to express what sometimes is difficult to put into words. They provide a picturesque form of communication.

Seeking beauty through lenses

Sometimes, it may be hard to get up and appreciate the gift of the day. The image which we have of our lives and our day may be unhappy, sometimes. When it happens, I go outside to look for beauty and harmony. Nature around us is very beautiful and to see beauty is a choice.

To seek beauty is a treatment.

With my lenses, I touch the beauty.

making a self-portrait

On Self-Portrait

Self-portraits are a way to look at yourself from the outside in.

The process of making a self-portrait, which includes posing and snapping the picture, is a way of getting to know yourself, to make contact, to express yourself. It’s a pursuit, examination and attempts to understand what we’re made of. It’s the beginning of a continuous internal dialog, a way to uncover your secrets and become a friend to yourself.

The most important meeting in your life – the one with yourself.

photographs speak about us

Photographs speak about us

Each photo we take has a beginning. It is an impulse from inside our minds as we see something. It can be stairs, turning points, curvy lines that cross the straight lines, the borders and the horizons, green grass and rust.

We discover ourselves “out there,” as the images we see around us are the pieces of ourselves we can sense within us.

We can understand our paths step by step, piece by piece, day by day as we take pictures. Photographs are like mirrors that reflect our lives.

The power of photography

What photos are made from?

You could answer that they are made from light and time. And this is correct.

But I would answer that photos are made from people perceptions and choices to see things. And it is also true.

In both cases, invisible becomes visible.

This is the power of the photography.
