For full C.V,Awards,Group exhibitions and publications - visit my Website. My work revolves around "The human condition" as social portraits. frames that illuminate my subject's condition or social condition...between comrodary or unity and over to loneliness and misfortune. I take my time trying to figure out how my subjects can portray their condition. Sometimes it takes a second (when all things come together) and sometimes I take my time and wait for it to happen. In some of my work contradiction plays a big role and in other shots it's about harmony. 32 years old, never studied photography, but my work is influenced by my other passion- Political philosophy (M.A student).
M.A - Political Philosophy
