Tell us about yourself.

I am a heavy tea drinker, photography lover (obviously), who studied psychology. Of course after getting a degree in it, I now concentrate more on photography. Also I have a love for quirky cartoons like Adventure time.

At what moment in your life did you decide to become a photographer?

I can’t really tell when I decided to be a photographer. To me, the whole “photography thing” just happened very naturally, I haven’t had to make any radical decisions. At the same time, I am quite open about the future, whether it will bring some photography work or not. I would prefer that it would, of course.

What’s the most powerful photograph you’ve seen? What makes it so powerful?

There are many powerful photographs I have seen and consider them to be a great piece of art. Most recently though I have discovered Richard Mosse and his “infra series”. Essencially, it captures an ongoing war in Congo. It is strong not only because of the content, but at the same time it’s beautiful visually. He shot it on red Kodak film, so everything is red and pink which creates an amazing atmosphere.

What’s something people would never expect about you?

I like to draw and write (poems) on wall in my bedroom . I can’t take very good care of plants also.
