Statement 

Exploring the concept of rhythm in everyday life of the cities is the base of my photographs. I am interested to look at the factors by which we recognize a city. It can be a significant feature like an iconic building or an insignificant one like a pile of dust, which surprisingly both become unique when their own rhythm is experienced and discovered. In making my photography series I focus usually for a long period of time on a specific location, which can be the city street, a window with a view that works as a frame for my images or the architecture - building and its interior.
