Artist Statement:

The one thing in photography which interests me the most is testing boundaries and finding basic and fundamental characteristics that separates different areas and subjects, both in the visual level and in the philosophical level. I am taking real life scenes that are transferred to the surreal. In my work I'm trying to give a new meaning to the scene. By taking the scene out of its contexts, some time with computer techniques, I bring the audience into my surreal world and into his or her own imagination.

About the "Confettical Landscape" series:

The "Confettical Landscape" is an ongoing series, in that series I connect the landscape, which is fixed in time, with the "interference" of the confetti that I blow in the air, which is transient, thereby creating a hybrid moment that in reality, he was gone in a split second, and in the act of photography it becoming eternity, I show to the viewer the result and that leads the viewer both into surreal world that looks natural.


In that act of photography, I create a privatee ceremony, supposedly is meaningless. I create a record without incident.
