1. Describe yourself and your work.

It’s hard for me to define myself because I am constantly changing. What remains constant is my photography style—minimalist, clean, formalistic, and accurate.

2. How did you get started?

I grew up in a house where my dad photographed incessantly. He had plenty of film cameras, and I remember on one of our family trips, I took his camera—which was then heavy and complicated—and just looked through the viewfinder. It was the first time I saw the world through a lens, and I loved it! It was a powerful experience for me, and at that moment I knew I wanted a camera for myself.

3. What piece of work best represents you and why?

My photos are all characterized by a formalist, minimalist look. I put a significant emphasis on lines, shapes, and colors, and I have high sensitivity to minimalist aesthetics. I'm currently working on my final project for my BA studies in photography, and I think that this project represents me best.
