About Me

Throughout virtually all of my adult life I’ve been traveling, seeking adventure and ways to learn and interact with cultures which are very different from my own. Photography became a great excuse to look deeper and to make my experiences more intense.

My main interest is people. I’m especially fascinated by surviving, evolving ancient traditions. People working in unique, challenging conditions and those who live in close bond with nature.

The stories I’m drawn to are generally those that I come across on the road, by chance. They’re outside of what the mass media usually shows us about our planet. I want my images to provide just a tiny bit of a window into those worlds, those lives which don’t get much, if any coverage.

"Lumix cameras have opened up countless possibilities for my photography. I can shoot in places and in situations where I would’ve never even tried before. Very importantly, the cameras are light-weight. I can take them with me all the time and have all that power, all those features anywhere. "
