What inspired you to become a photographer?

I discovered photography relatively late in life, in my thirties. From then till now it is  a part of my everyday life, my love and passion, my way of living. There was not a certain moment when I felt that, it just happened as love at first sight.

Whats inspires your photography?

I am inspired by the people around me, their life and stories,  so I am always  trying to be in the moment and capture that moment when it comes. For that reason I enjoy street photography and taking portraits of older people whose  every wrinkle tells  a story.

What does it mean to you?

When I take my camera and go out for taking photos, whether I am somewhere in the countryside or in the city , I escape to my small intimate world.

How did the project start?

I love spontaneity in photography as I do in my life. All depends from the moment.

How did you approach the subject matter?

When I notice a subject which I want to take photo of, I approach it very carefully from distance to maintain spontaneity.
