Sometimes I'm writing, sometimes I'm sculpturing, sometimes I'm painting, sometimes I'm photographing... sometimes I'm alive. I'm trying to catch a little bit of light, little bit of pictures from books, from lifestory people which I know. I'm collecting sentences about photography, I'm collecting impressions and little delighties. I'm trying to know much less than I know. Knowledge lead us to blind. Let the blindness to lead you.

All of these pictures was took with old classical cameras (like Pentacon Six) and analogue materials (like Fuji Provia 400).

Knowledge is power they say. I guess you are of the kind that knows a lot - and then manage to forget all about it! It´s called "art" or something. Brilliant approach and work. Thanks for the show.
