The art itself is an intimate exploration of the internal spiritual space- emotions, passions, desires and experience coming together, creating an organic self- expressive picture.

The technical process is quaint – I recombine various negatives on a very thin photo paper (out of production for more of 30 years now "ORWO", "FORTE"- former socialist regime brands) which gets crumpled and lightened in the process of printing and manipulated with various mixtures of chemicals, the result of which are rich earthy brown, ocher and tan hues on purely black and white paper without the use of any toners.

Thus every piece that emerges is unique, no editions possible.

The Pain and Joy of Creation Embrace in Love.
