I fell in love with photography when I was 17 during my trip to Germany. At that time I was more focused on photographing my holidays, moments of my life.
It is during my years at the university that my quest changed.
Now, an important part of my photography is focused on the concept of human loneliness in the non places. I present this concept symbolically through isolated figures, turned away, blurred or camouflaged in the urban landscape.
This perception is very much influenced by my studies in sociology, most importantly from the theories about super modernity.
The other part of my photography is focused on the feelings using the photography as an instrument to elaborate a happy or a sad moment. I achieve it through not conventional self-portraits using long exposure, high contrasts or even dressing myself as a bride. I’ve worked in three different autobiographical projects and each of them depicts a moment in my life.
In my compositions I aim for simplicity, whilst each image tells its very own story and captures the mood.
Every one of us will be touched by mental illness at some point in our life, either directly or through someone who is close to us. Head Talks believe there is no single path to mental wellbeing and that people can be helped in finding what works for them through information, inspiration and discussion.
By hosting short talks with psychiatrists, academics, yogis, authors, meditation experts, politicians, nutritionists, those who have struggled with and met the challenge of mental illness, and many others with a keen interest in the mind, Head Talks wants to enable each of us to build our own personal toolbox to support mental wellbeing and stay mentally fit.
By bringing these thoughts and discussions into the open, they aim to help lift the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
