    My first encounter with photography was in 2001 during my two years of photography courses at The Art University. The experience that I gained during this time helped me to see the surprises that photography offers. I began to take this art seriously two years ago, when I started to be a self taught photographer. Taking pictures has become a part of my life.
    Curiosity leads me to different roads in photography, it brought in me creativity to start many series like the TTV Nude serie, the pinhole serie DPOV and so many others.
Most of my photographs are like journal pages written with light. My work has been dedicated from some time to introspection and direct observation of the self. I find my artwork themes in the most obvious of places and that are, in my immediate surroundings.
    I do like to experiment all in photography, to be creative in all ways possible.
    I shoot both digital and film, and I develop my own negatives in my darkroom.
