I grew up with various rangefinder and SLR 35mm film cameras, developing my own film and prints. Nowadays I enjoy portraiture and challenge myself to see interesting compositions everywhere around me.
I believe that a great photograph reveals just enough to stimulate the viewer's mind and let it complete the picture in a way that resonates with that specific viewer. This way images can have a viewer-specific impact and thus be more relate-able.
Artists that inspire me include M.C.Escher, the great impressionists and Ming Thein.
May we rise above seeking popularity and focus on the images that interest us even when never seen by the others.
