About my work

Image Photography

A photograph is just a depiction of yourself. An image tells your story.

Visuality makes up the biggest part of human perception. And photography is the only scientifically accurate way of depiction. So an Image is a photograph that both visually represents you and makes you the protagonist of a true story.
