You shoot film because…

Very interesting that when I start to use film, It makes me slowly inside my head. I start listen my heart and intuition carefully. Photography It is like Zen meditation. Also I like my camera. Rolleiflex is a very beautiful:-).

Your photography feels like…

My Photographs are a moments of silence when I can be invisible and the person stays alone with the camera and somebody looks into her eyes from the darkness behind lenses. When we take a photo – especially portraits – we fix a moment which would never happened without camera. My photos about a world which never exists, but the photos exist and they are a proof that Neverland exists.
