I have a deep interest in spirituality.
I have travelled to Venice to photograph some of the iconic churches, to Abu Dhabi and Istanbul to photograph iconic mosques and to India and Nepal to photograph the key four places of the life of Buddha Shakyamuni: Lumbini – Nepal, where he was born; Bodh Gaya – India, where he was enlightened; Sarnath – India, where he started teaching the Dharma; Kushinagar – India where he died. When I photographed Venice, I imagined it completely empty, at the time of the plague of 1400, where people either escaped or took refuge in the churches. At that time, it was believed that those massive epidemics were the manifestation of God’s anger. I will continue to investigate spirituality, visit and photograph in various countries.
