My world is full of Portraits. Social networks are full of them.
I realized that Portrait, as accepted by the people around me, is not sensual for me. Social networks include plenty of variations of one person that are often in contradiction, regardless of the image is art or document. The complexity of any individual personality is impossible to express, and thus the chance to capture the characteristics of the portrayed person is close to zero.
I understand a portrait as a combination of three attributes impressive background, fabulous light, and interesting appearance.
My work aims to show all these three attributes as well as something innovative for today’s photography.
