My work deals with the points of intersection between photography and classical fine arts. Just as a painter creates an abstraction of what he sees, I attempt to reflect a personal interpretation of reality, going behind and beyond the bare image of it. Employing special techniques, such as over- and long time exposure I isolate abstract forms and structures from concrete objects and classical landscape scenes. Furthermore, I am interested in the poetry of the ordinary, always searching for expression in the commonly overlooked scenes which surround us daily.
