Artist Statement -

I believe that photography is a very unique and international language.
It is universally understood by all people throughout the world, regardless of their color, language, religion,
As a creative person, I focus their interests in specific areas:
- Fine Art Photography (as subject): everlasting charm and enduring female beauty (bodygraphia), Portrait, Nature, aesthetic searches by shape and color,experiment.

I shoots to create something special and unique for each subject and situation. My desire and passion to explore, learn and better himself is apparent to any eye that views my work. I thinks of himself as a photographic interpreter of beauty, with an eye for the details, shape, light and that turn a simple photo in to a aesthetic standard.

I do not time to stop, self-educating; experimenting, studying, and practicing are my primary enjoyments in life, and the results speak for themselves with images that capture each unique body, highlighting the curves and individuality of each subject and exploring the dynamic interplay between the two.
Nudes type scenes feature strongly in photos - controlled lighting, unusual shaping and all kinds of visual inspire me.

Don't expect my work to fade away anytime soon. My thirst for new adventures in photography drive me throughout daily life.
New challenges, new subjects, and new scenery are too inspiring for me to turn away from.
Put down the camera?
Why, it's my life.
Settle for less than extraordinary?
Not going to happen for a very long time. Keep your eyes open for new work, and expect to be challenged and thrilled with what you find!...

I've been doing the works since the early '80's, and I've written quite a few artists' statements about the art portfolio work. The more time goes by, the less adequate words seem to be, and the less interested I am in trying to talk about the pictures at all.
If words could 'do it' ... I'd be a writer ... but you've noticed, I am not one....
