"As a true sentimentalist, I express my feelings trough my images. I get inspired by authentic cultures and the pure beauty of our Earth. As an artist, I'm always searching for that one, perfect moment where everything comes together. Those moments tell my story. Trough the years I developed my own, strong style. My images show passion, with space for your own story as a viewer."
