Portraits

Photography and especially portraits and photo essays is the best way to connect me with the viewer, to tell him both about the world around me, the people I photograph and about my feelings too. I have started to shoot few years ago when I bought an old russian camera – Zenit 11. After first roll I knew this is it. In fact I started to shoot digital but whenever I saw my pictures, they seemed to be flat and empty. That is why I shoot portraits mostly on film. When I tried shooting film the very first time, I was totally in love with the results. Photography became a real window to the past, to the world which no longer exists. I could almost touch the memories. With film photography we can learn how to be patient and how to respect every single frame on film. Photos taken on film are a true piece of art. You can make a lot of copies, but there is always an original – your very own work literally painted with light. When you take pictures with digital camera, your photos are only virtual. They don’t really exist. In film photography it’s very hard to be tempted to make shooting photos easier, when you don’t have a camera which will relieve you from everything. You’ve got the power and control to make the photo your very own work. From the start to the end. That does not mean that I don’t use digital camera. On this website you can also find my digital works. I hope you enjoy both.
