“I create subjective images inspired by nature (mountain landscape and others), urban and architectural space, as well as non-figurative photography. Black-and-white photography is my favourite medium, where I have the full influence on the process of image creation, but I do not avoid the colour.
I travel and look for places, where I can take my photographs, images of the surrounding space, which has made me stop by. My photography presents my imaginarium, my vision of these places.
I use light and time. Light paints my photography, time is stopped or compressed into one frame.”
In addition to using modern photographic techniques, in the “PhotoCave” studio, he also creates handmade large format contact prints based on historical methods of Platinotype and Palladiotype. From time to time he also creates intermedia diaporamas / photocasts, which he treats as a separate field of creativity, where on the basis of his own photographs or time-lapse films, combined with music and often poetry, he uses the intermedia synergy effect.
