TITLE: "Breathing Skin"
What is like being a woman? The idea of Breathing Skin came in an early morning while taking a shower and observing the fog from the hot water and the drops on the shower glass walls. While letting myself inspired I remembered all the feeling I had over the years from the emptiness, to sorrow, happiness, fragility, sensuality, nudity, curiosity and femininity. The series aims to convey the feelings ME (I/WE), as a women feel dressed or undressed.

As we pass by life most of us forget to open our eyes and see. Since I put my hand on a camera, I started to see the world in a different way, a way that I couldn’t describe in words. Photography is more than technique and composition. Photography “speaks” through light and shadows about emotions, moments, inner feelings, life style, cultures and customs. It speaks about life, and this is what I love and want to express through my images.
I always aim to create images in which each viewer can find himself in a certain stage of life whether we talk about fine art, family portraits or documentary photography. I started photography in 2007 when I decided to capture the places where I was traveling. But travel photography was not enough so I started to challenge her with different projects. I traveled and pictured people and places from Romania, Nepal, Argentina, India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Jordan and many many others.
I have tried almost all types of photography but none of them fascinates me enough as portraiture, being documentary, fine art or conceptual. We, as human being, are beautiful and that is reflected through our eyes, through our features, through our gesture.
It is stunning just to stay and observe, and then capture it and show it, in order to open the eyes of everybody towards the beauty that is around us. I started photography because this is the only way to express what I see, feel, think, to make public my inner being, my state of mind. And it is an unbelievable stunning feeling when you show your work and people find themselves in it, in that pictures, in that moment.
Each image represents a part of me and hopefully of you. Even though we see it in a different way, it is a reflection of a part of what we are.
Photography is my mirror and I love it.
