Alone in The Waiting Line

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

"The hands of my grandmother are a metaphor of her whole lifetime. The marks on her hands are like notes of experiences written on the stave of life ..." My emotional photography is a tribute towards harmony and tradition, which more and more often requires care to survive in our times. Beauty appears in harmony with its all components, and so in nature, placing the receiver in respect of reality. Reality which can not be explained or justified in any other way than through contemplation. My photography becomes an attempt to explain and understand the world. The world of femininity and sensuality, truth and melancholy. Focusing on details, I try to extract from them what we miss the most, what every day slips us away. I am trying to show Beauty in its existential authenticity as a natural, classical form, as an eternal value deprived of immorality and cool indifference or as the infinite melancholy of pure aestheticism.
