For some reason, I like the act of taking photographs while traveling during the harsh winter months when snow is falling. There are several reasons for this. Among them is that I feel at home in the absence of complex colors in a vast area. It may seem contradictory that I am attracted to a world with few colors when I have gone to great lengths to photograph it, but the fact is that it has the power to highlight what exists there. Sometimes no two scenes are the same, and they are always fresh and new.

The moment captured by the camera through multiple layers of glass remains as a permanent memory, and connects people with various images. Go back and forth between the real world and the fantasy world endlessly. It's a very fun and exciting world. I encountered that world when I was 10 years old, and it continues to this day. I would like to continue to pursue the world of artistry and creativity within the culture of photography.
