    Artist Statement 

    My photographic work is about architecture as space, as poetry,….

    I am interested in investigating the unique identity of space in order to reveal its character, the depth of insight.

    My inspiration derives from contradictions, rhythm, darkness, light, structures, material, … I try to explore the symbolic meaning of constructed forms and create a spatial ambiguity, an imaginary space.
