Declaration about my art:
Photographing – I define myself more as a "Picture Hunter" rather than as a Photographer. I don't stage a situation or a picture. I am traveling equipped with my camera and once I am exited from scenery, situation or an image, I pull out the camera and shoot to capture one moment of the experience – moment which will represent the whole experience which is in my mind.
Woodcarving: The woodcarving in my eyes is like a couple dancing, the trunk and the figure which is in my mind.
During the dance, the trunk undress not necessary parts and the image are dressing its shape, the image is known in advance but the grain and the shade which the image will wear, unknown and become clear during the carving dance.
