I think and feel that in the people -scale sensibilities of beauty , purity and harmony of a millennia-old vision spring to nature. It is the origin and basis of life , of being.
Much of what we live today and experience is , in the truest sense of the word "un – natural".
My images are to inspire little associations with everyday life.
They allow rapt , " de-ranged " insight into a world outside distractions , addictions, appearances , material pursuit and action.
My image issues arising from an ongoing internal process , thoughts and feelings that want to be expressed.
The productions are developed from the chosen theme and image in the living out of the here and now. Ideally, everything is in flux , the person to be represented and me as the photographer are in a harmony of mood , the " model " one with the environment, nature and the image subject. And I'm an observer and director.
All my work is based on nude photography. The theme is the most honest act and the most natural thing for me.
In addition to photography, which has accompanied me throughout my life , I've thought intensively with the painting. Early on, my soul has deeply been touched of the harmony and beauty of Art Nouveau. In the screens of the Pre-Raphaelites and the Symbolists, I found again many elements of my feelings.
Image topics which particular my painting early on , finally find their fulfillment in my photography. In my pictures, the image of the visible is only a medium for the transmission of symbols of a deeper reality.
Life can be so gorgeous !
