The photographer describes why he choose photography as:
“ Every moment is unique: Each of the components of screen is present only at that moment; tone of light, clouds, the moon, colours, what you feel, how you see, how the others feel and look like, etc. The sparkles of life: In the rush of the day most of us ignore or don’t even notice beauty of things or contemporary issues. Being in the moment: While making photography I’m truly, deeply, madly in that moment and I spend more time on this unique beauty. So, what I passionately would like to do is, seizing that special moment, eternalizing it with my camera and making people realize the diversity of life.”
