I am an explorer, who is looking for new places, new topics and new people, but not least new way to think. I often walk alone on my own way, trying to avoid a previously used path just because I strongly believe we need to experience, and every time I fail, I learn and I start again. I go further and further until I reach something new and unexpected.
I always wanted to know the answer to “how?” and “why?”. Now I am trying to answer these questions with my pictures. I am a very curious person, and as a photojournalist I am eager to tell stories about any topics around the globe – environment, culture and conflict in particular being my core interests. I see immense potential in narratives within the topics of endangered cultures in the ever-changing political landscape of the world, as well as in cultural phenomenon that gain sudden popularity. I believe that us humans need powerful visual stories in order to strengthen the connections between different cultures.
I’m not a conceptual photographer, rather I am one who notices and reacts. I have a passion for establishing an immediate contact with my surroundings, which I then transform into visual stories in my journalistic works. My ability to serve as an observer helps me to perform in any situation at anytime. I collect inspiration and topics for my projects through adventures such as travelling and mountaineering. The main focus for me is to offer current stories to news agencies from whichever region I am involved with, and to keep the stories alive on the air.
My mission is to show a different side of our world to people who are not able to see it, and answer the questions with my pictures.
