ABOUT

Experimentation, performance, encounters, and a genuine interest in bridging the unlikely are key concerns in both my photographic and personal work.

As to photography itself, my Balkan origins pointed me into the direction of paradoxes. This latter interest has fueled my appreciation over the years for the abstract and colourful images of Viviane Sassen, the purely straight architectural black and white lines of Paul Jung, not denying the kitsch and baroque aesthetics of David LaChapelle, and in passing the experimental digital work of Pierre Debusschere to round off the circle of my educational background, scientific and artistic.
