"While working on an abstract, conceptual photo project discovery and inspiration was opposed to the perception of realism and abstraction.
With each shot, with bated breath, trying to capture the actual explosion of color and texture, a fleeting moment of an event, a combination of places, events, and shot. And in most cases, capturing a frame, I did manage to create a conceptual photographic works that look more like paintings or graphic art, than photographic images. I try to take my picture with a new artistic level, which could result in a new measurement and evaluation of conceptual photography.
Conceptual art should be unique and very limited access or rare. That is why only two copies of one photo.
Life should always be an experiment and filled with wonders, travel, and travel must be with passion and a smile on his lips. And so every day ... always ... enjoy the ride, wherever you are!
I hope that my images will help bring some excitement and passion for life in your hearts and in your family, home or office. Buy ... ... hang on a wall, sit back, deep and comfortable chair, sipping a cold drink and let my art and your fantasy match! "
