You shoot film because…
Because it has soul. Since I mostly use expired films I need luck also to capture unrepeatable moments.With a film camera in my hand I look at my theme in a completely different way than I would other times.The camera brings out my creative mind.

Your photography feels like…
I love to observe the life of strangers, feel what they feel, good or bad. I am a curious person, looking for answers. My photos represent my journey to these answers that I share with others in a kind of subtle harmony.
