Seaside
This series portrays various characters in a seaside setting. The images are connected by the common certainty of horizon and sea, which form the thematic framework. The works blur the boundaries between street photography, documentary photography and travel photography. All these shots are designed in such a way that the vanishing points within the landscape draw the viewer's eye to the pictorial surface. The human element provides an alternative focus to the natural setting, and allows the viewer to delve into the narrative possibilities of both the figure and their relationship with the landscape. These photographs capture specific moments during these individuals’ daily lives. They display their interactions with the world they live in, reflections of their innermost thoughts and the nature of the human condition.

Chiaroscuro
In this series of portraits, the artist explores the theme of chiaroscuro in both dramatic and mundane settings and situations. The juxtaposition of shadow and light compose a unique and enigmatic environment within each shot. In these photographs, every detail is significant. The potential to evoke a feeling of intimacy and sensitivity around the human subject is thus heightened, encouraging a narrative interpretation. This allows the banal to transcend into something deeper, the mystery of which eludes the viewer.
