This «Untitled» series is the result of long hours of observation of the world. The author presents high contrast photographs with a strong narrative, and they all manifest an inherent curiosity for human behaviour and attitude.
In the pictures, the viewer can see high admiration for the photographed subjects, both human and inanimate. This sensibility comes from the photographer’s perspective and ability to catch just the right frame in the right time and place. The use black-and-white ties the photographs to a detail-oriented narrative. Where one can spot no colours, the attention is captured by shapes and overall movement in the frame.
Instinct is the keyword. The author did not stage the photographs, and at the beginning, they were not part of the same project. This «Untitled» series is still a work in progress and, as the author put it, it is a journey of revelations yet to discover.
