"I try to reveal alternative perspectives and artistic interpretations of the world around us. I don't just document through photography, but rather try to add something unexpected to the reality. I want that my photographs make me dig behind all the self-evident observations.
In everyday life it's so easy to get stuck into routine habits and mindset or even routine emotional reactions. I'm always most delighted when I succeed to surprise myself - either emotionally or intellectually - with a photograph by finding a point of view, perspective, detail, mystery or interpretation that I didn't think about at all when first approaching a subject.
By taking and making photographs I try to find the essential elements that speak to me in a scene. My aim is to squeeze the reality out of everything unnecessary and focus only to things that matter to me at particular moment."
