Sometimes, my photography is just a reaction to something that’s just happened and all the issues I address are within myself, setting scenes and stories and concluding into a sort of narrative imagery. It is like a reportage from a world that exist only in my mind. Photography is an art of observation but also a result of personal imagination. I deeply agree with Ansel Adams: “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
But more then that, I use to work on photos, using the computer but also sketching and painting onto, to transform and modify the original image parameters till the image loose the photographic qualities and become more closely to painting. If Susan Sontag said that “the painter constructs, the photographer discloses”, I prefer to disclose the construction of my images.
The camera and the computer are just the instruments that help me to reveal the unknown. When people look at my pictures I want them to feel them like reading a novel in a peaceful place, far away from the crowded and noisy city. Even if they look at it for a second I hope the viewers will find enough reasons to think about and remembering.
