A glance at the philosophical truths of the 21st century concerning who we are and what our lives mean. In various times, various philosophical concepts were expressed by artists in an allegorical form. The allegories that I created express modern philosophical concepts that are important to us today.

I started from classic photography during my travels around the world in 2007. In my early photographs I tried to “seize the moment” in someone’s life and document the events in the surrounding world. But, at some point I felt constrained by classic photography and turned my camera from the outside world to the inner world. I started creating my own world of subjective reality with my camera and computer. Today, my artworks are far from classic photography and remind paintings of Renaissance period and at the same time neo-surrealism.
