"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
-- Aaron Siskind
It is about a journey. A journey to touch a soul: your own, other humans' or even Earth's.
This journey makes you understand better yourself, humanity and our place on this world. It makes you feel one with the rest of the world.
In this journey you learn to grow, to progress and to achieve more. You learn to catch a moment, a sight, a feeling and keep it more and better than your memory otherwise allows.
This journey is about seeking the beauty of nature and sharing it. This Earth is too beautiful to be ignored or forgotten. It is a dreamland shaped in reality. Seek its splendour and you'll find unimaginably beautiful reality. It reveals the essence of life, it exposes its own journey and transformation over billions of years. It teaches you what matters in life and what doesn't. In front of an impressive landscape you feel meek but so important for understanding, cherishing and protecting its cycle of life, its beauty and its heritage.
Photographing the Earth is not just about amazing scenery, it scales down to the life that is supporting. It can be about people and their lifestyle, it can be about flora and fauna that enrich the Earth existence.
An innocent smile, a wrinkled face, a lonely street, a crowded market, an impressive building, a perfect dish are all part of our daily life, take a moment and understand what feelings they bring. Stop the time and share the feelings. It calms, it heals and it energizes you.
You are welcome to join me in this journey. I am sharing with you here not only my photographs but also my feelings and my memories. Although you won't be able to feel exactly what every photograph means to me, you will be able to interpret them with your own feelings and experiences. And maybe, in a way, through them, our souls may touch.
“My life is shaped by
the urgent need to wander and observe,
and my camera is my passport.”
