For me the essence of photography is seeing. The camera is an instrument that guides me from ‘looking’ towards ‘seeing’. We encounter the world around us, there is so much we lay our eyes on. People, the city, nature, the colors of the day. Photography challenges me to absorb these images and interpret them, feel the emotions they evoke and reflect on them. This creates awareness and comprehension. I strive to convert this inspiration into a composition and an exciting photograph.
