About his work, he says: “The outside world is more and more complex and chaotic. In this ridiculous era characterised by plastic values, many things that are profound and noble are being questioned. I try to reconfigure my way this period from my point of view. I dance the sound of these exaggeratedly banal and kind of artificial times. But this is our inevitable fate. Everything’s got a plastic texture. During the construction process of my images, I base on the freedom of creation and the reflexions about the human being as an individual. My work is my own inner world. The scenes I show have arisen from my fantasies; sometimes I draw them before photographing them. Each detail is clear in my mind. What I do is turning my inner world into reality. That’s all”.
