What is it that attracts you the most of what you have around you?
Silence, I guess. This is the only way I can think and concentrate.

Three adjectives to describe yourself.
Calm, melancholic, introverted.

Favorite web of photography
There are so many good ones, that I can't choose.
What camera do you use? Dou you use one lense?
I use two cameras. One digital - Canon 60 D and analogue - Canon AE 1.
I use two manual lens.
Tell about exhibition if you ‘ve had any.
I haven't had yet.
Do you sell prints? How do you make it and where can someone buy?
I sold twice. I had many prints after my photography exams, so I asked if anyone's interested.
What was your most big success?
There are and were so many amazing artists, that I can't even tell about everyone. My favourite and my number one is Diane Arbus. She must have been such an interesting person! I also love photographies of Sally Mann, Henri Cartier-Bresson, James Nachtwey, Werner Bischof, Sarah Moon, Cathleen Naundorf and many more.
Describe some of your projects
I go and take photos. It's about the moment. I must feel it with all my heart. Otherwise, I don't do it.
Your main concept.
Silence and disorder in one moment.
What is your occupation, job, interest besides photography.
I'm studying something totally not connected with art. I hope that it will change.
I love reading books and watching good films. I'd like to travel more.
Which advice would you give someone who wants to become a (professional) photographer?
To do this the way we feel, the way we see it, not anyone else. Believe.
Do you work somewhere as photographer?
I didn't work as a photographer. I'm doing this right now, because I love it. Photography is the love of my life. I hope that someday things will change and I'll be able to work as a photographer. That's my biggest dream.
Change studies. Pass photography exams next year. I'd like to travel more.
Stay open-minded. And take better photos.
