Solitude. You will hardly see cheerful people in my photos. What intrigues me the most in life is the solitude, which is different from being lonely. Loneliness is best described as being isolated, but solitude is the state of being alone without being lonely and it can lead to a clear perception of one’s own self. In my photography, I try to capture that in a poetic way. In a way that we would see in Tarkovsky’s or Kiarostami’s movies. I get my inspiration from cinema and search my creations in the moments of my everyday life routine, as I believe that the most fascinating scenes may be found in the poetics of the ordinary.
