– How and when did you become interested in photography?
I have been admiring human bodies as far as I can remember. I used to express my visions by painting. Then I realized that I can do a better job with a camera. It happened in 2015 when I started photographing nude.
– Is there any artist/photographer who inspired your art?
There is a photographer I used to pose for a few times. He is a nude photographer as well. He showed a great respect and admiration towards women. And you can feel it from his photos! His subjects are all naked but none of them are demeaning.
– Why do you work in black and white rather than colour?
I like working with both. But I believe that black and white is more elegant and can better emphasize the beauty of curves and shapes. Same applies for lights and shadows.
– How much preparation do you put into taking a photograph/series of photographs?
I write down my ideas and make a note when I find some interesting place for taking photos. Then the photo shooting itself is usually based on my notes and my goal is to form my idea. But I’m not too strict about following the notes because taking photos should be fun and sometimes I just get carried away by some other idea that strikes me during the shooting.
– Where is your photography going? What projects would you like to accomplish?
I would like to point out that nudity is not bad and the naked body is natural and can be elegant, too. Of course there are rules and situations when nudity is not appropriate. But I would like people to be more able to distinguish the appropriate and inappropriate situations instead of classifying nudity itself as a bad thing.
In terms of a project I would love to cooperate with a nudist/naturist community where I would be allowed to document their everyday life – for other people to understand that being naked is very natural and that all humans are the same in a way.
