What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– My interest in photography was discovered by my dad at the age of eight when he developed the photos I took with his old Zenit. Later as a teenager I competed in and won photo contests. But initially, like many others, I followed the path of my parents or on a larger scale society.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– To me, photography is the way to communicate and express feelings. It is to capture moments that shall not be forgotten and explore the fragments of life in moments of dissemination, movement and emotion. I am mesmerized by the power of light and I try using it to imprint the world.

What do you most like to photograph?
– People, life around me, lines and shadows.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– Mario Testino, Joe McNally and Steve McCurry.
