"Capturing the visual poetry of colours and light as they emerge and dance at the thresholds where heaven touches earth - this is my way to communicate and my joy to behold"
My art is devoted to the magical interplay of colours and form which my inner and outer eyes discover and reveal. It is influenced by my very personal perspective and perception of the subjects, their communion with their surroundings and light.
It’s not the exotic and spectacular I search for (thinking that it‘s quite easy to reproduce their beauty). It’s the seemingly common, the mostly overlooked that attracts me the most. To convert them with my camera into visual poetry, revealing their mystery of beauty and bewitchment is my passion and challenge.
These images - even if they originated from my very personal sense for light, beauty, harmony and composition - gain a true personal life on their own thus becoming independent beings.
They were created through me yet not by me. They have the magic to touch the viewer and capture his attention in their very own way.
