Photography is my life, and that’s not always a blessing.

I'm bored to death by the debate over photography being art or not.
Photography is photography and that’s already so much and so difficult, why adding useless stuff?

In a moment when everyone owns a camera and claims to be a photographer, I'm still so shy about defining myself as such.
I came to the conclusion there must be a meaning, a story you fiercely want to tell, not to reduce photography to a sterile excercise.
