“A lens is there to render the essence of your vision, not the beauty of a subject, otherwise it’s just a snapshot. In this work, each landscape when seen for the first time at a glimpse, seems to be an entity. The colors and geometric lines form a unit. It’s just when our brain starts to analyze our vision that we understand how we lost our childhood.”

“I feel that an artwork is successful when once injected into the communication channels it manages to awake a dialog.” Says the artist.
