ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Years ago, I received a birthday gift that acted as a spark to my creative senses. I may not have realized it back then, but this rather small device, which people use mostly for phone calls, texting and social media, came to play a major role in my artistic development. Photography is now a passion thanks to an iPhone.
I proceeded to shoot with an DLSR and then a mirrorless camera, but my iPhone is after all, the lens that is always with me. I photograph what I see and what moves me, be it just a fleeting moment. There is beauty in everything around us. It’s found in nature, the diverse landscape, the sunset, the ocean as well as the people and daily grind of city life, the abandoned buildings, the old, the rusty and the forgotten.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Years ago, I received a birthday gift that would come to spark my creative senses. I did not realize it back then, but this rather small, sleek device has played a major role in my artistic development. Photography has now become a passion thanks to a phone . Although I predominantly shoot with an DLSR these days, I still capture a lot of images with my iPhone. It is after all, the camera that is always with me.

I photograph what I see and what moves me, be it just a fleeting moment. Therefore, my images are of a wide variety, because I believe there is beauty in everything around us. It's found in nature, the diverse landscape, the sunset, the ocean as well as the people and daily grind of city life, the abandoned buildings, the old, the rusty and the forgotten.
