“The sage wears clothes of coarse cloth but carries jewels in his bosom;
He knows himself but does not display himself;
He loves himself but does not hold himself in high esteem.”

Scattered notes: Photography can be ruthless, that is why I always have a gentle approach;
I want to take portraiture to some pure essence – it’s a trace of the real, stillness and quietness;
photography’s about contemplation and emotions – it always moves me.
Respect above all. Motivation is a big mystery.
