If three months ago, someone had told me that I would wake up every day at 4:30 AM, don five layers of warm clothing and go and stand next to a frozen lake with temperatures close to -20C just to photograph some swans and cranes, I would have sent them to see a psychiatrist. And…
Welcome to my Blog!
I am basically a travel and portrait photographer who tries to find meaning of things within a larger context and tries to simplify to understand them better. My journeys have taken me to distant lands where by comparing previous experiences I have learned many lessons in life and have met many wonderful and beautiful people who have shared personal moments with me. I have been attracted to their compassion, humility, love, pride ... positive elements that give hope and confidence and bring people together regardless of race or religion.
I try to photograph beauty in all forms whether emotions, movement, or human interaction. My basic concept of life is one of mutual respect. I realize that faces may be different but human interactions and relationships are the same and so we are indeed a “family of man”.
This blog is an attempt to reconcile my thoughts with my pictures and also allows me to relive those special moments where I took these pictures and to remember the individuals and places with fondness.
Please write and let me know if you like or can relate to any of my pictures or if you know any of these faces whether in person or through your own experiences.
Thank you for taking time to view my images. May creativity, joy and peace lead you in whichever journey you choose.
