This is a collecion of images of women that I have had a pleasure to photograph. Female portraits has been a very special experience from the perspective of an artist, and a human being.
This project started long time ago, but I remember every single moment that I spent with all these women and I hope for more exeptional encounters like these. For me, as a photographer, each portrait session is a spiritual experience that enhances my perception of female nature. Each woman that I have a pleasure to portrait has a special place in my life.
My highest priority is to create a unique piece of art in order to show the reflection of the female mind and understand the relationship between the soul and the flesh in that particular moment of time. I choose black and white photography as a perfect form of a creative expression. I always want the final result to be disturbing, ambiguous, and leave space for interpretation. To achive the desired effects I search for optical illusions, beams of light and shadows, textures and movement. Women portrayed by me are majestic and dignified, captured having unsettling facial expressions.
