Scattered notes: (…) Photography can be ruthless, that is why I always have a gentle approach. I must respect my subject.
(…) I want to take portrait to some pure essence. It’s a trace of the real, stillness and quietness. I’m fascinated to have people in front of the camera.
(…) I’m always thinking at a depictive level.
(…) You touch people when you expose yourself – that’s why is imperative to me to do it, when I have people exposing themselves in front of the camera.
(…) Photography always evoke the past and leads me to reflection. (…)Photography is more about feeling than about seeing.
