I look through photography subtle noteless evidences of connection between human being and the landscape and man’s sense for symetry. I am following the footpath we are leaving behind in the landscape. In so doing I am not interested in human being as an individual with his specific personality. I am interested in whole human community, that whole human swarm and its behavior.
We are aggressive and invasive animals. But before I accuse us of anything, I am preferably observing features, those we have developed ourselves during the evolution. I believe in our incredible potential and I believe we still just do not know how to effectively and meaningfully use it.
My photographs are about a human being in whom I believe. I am confident in his ability (or the ability of its Creator).
