„I see myself as a story telling photographer. We are surrounded by countless little interesting stories which are mostly disregarded by our demanding, stressful society. I love to drift with the flow of a place in order to discover the little things that make life worth living. There are so many things unnoticed, but worthy to be noticed, while life is rushing on. Our rapidly changing society, with all its aspects of emotional, materialistic, political and religious beliefs, is for me the most interesting subject to capture in images.“
