Born curious to discover the unknown, I am always on my way to explore mysterious and fascinating places and cultures. Having traveled to many countries in Asia, Europe and North America, I am dying to know more about Africa ( the whole of it in fact), South East Asia, Cuba, Southern and western US, western China and Latin America.
In hyper-fast modern time, people are lost in their quick agenda. We lack for time to contemplate on ourselves- who we once were, who we have become today and what is it within us that triggered this change etc.
Through photography once gets to slow down and take introspective on one's own life and the world around. Cultural-exploration type of travel enriches the soul, enlarges the heart, and makes one more compassionate with other human beings.
Photography is the best companion to travel, is a lifestyle, a way of learning to humbly appreciate the simple beauty in people and things. With peace and love in mind, I try to capture the moment that best embodies the soul and spirit of people, multi-faceted urban vibe, rustic rural beauty, the purity and wildness of nature.
Textures, patterns, shapes, lines and lights are mesmerizing in that when combined in different ways they become the small color pieces in kaleidoscope, conjuring up a world of magic, a vast sea of infinite imagination!
Follow me on a world-exploration journey and feel the curiosity, thrill, joy, humor, serenity conveyed by the subjects, which hopefully can spur your imagination and curiosity for discovering more of our stunning blue planet.
Life is short and make the best out of it!
