 For me, photography is about wandering, observing and telling stories.
From my early days of photography, I’ve always felt the influence of
André Kertész, Walker Evans, and Henri Cartier-Bresson whose
work demonstrates that profound and universal storytelling is considered art.

  1. Your photographs speak to me in a way no words ever could! Thank you for opening up the world to all of us and in doing so, show the common threads that bind humanity together.

  2. I was rather gutted to have missed your exhibition in Prague back in 2018, It has literally just closed for the day and we were departing the next day so the opportunity was lost, I actually posted an image of the closed Gallery on Instagram (I guess that was my story for the day) – glad to watch and learn from you here on WP.
