What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– There is something beautiful and scary at the same time how the photographs have the ability to imprison reality, change it, or even create a new one. A photographer is a demiurge, who not only creates but also discloses… particpates in other people’s lives, posseses the past captured by him.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– I was raised being surrounded by art. Studying fine arts and painting gave me some insight into classic and abstract art. I have a large selection of references ranging from Ancient culture, towards modern literature.

What do you most like to photograph?
– As noted by Jerry Uelsmann, “the camera is a fluid way of encountering that other reality..”. Photographers are naturally divided, according to their own inclinations.. I have never been able to capture the real world; I capture feelings, moods, that which is under the surface.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– Sarah Moon, Irina Ionesco, Paolo Roversi, Helmut Newton, Julia Margaret Cameron, Joel Peter Witkin…

The Queens House Ghost - 
There were no reports of the Queen’s House in Greenwich, England being haunted until two Canadian tourists snapped a photograph of the empty staircase. When the photograph was developed something unusual appeared: one or perhaps two cloaked, ghostly figures. 
The film and negative were examined by experts, who could detect no signs of tampering or technical interference. No natural explanation could be given for the photograph. The tourists were especially surprised since they had no interest in ghosts. 
After the photo was publicized employees at the house reported having seen strange figures near the staircase and hearing phantom footsteps. In 2002 the spirit of a woman was sighted gliding around the first floor of the house before eventually disappearing through a wall.
