The photograph has a very special place in my life. As a social worker, the photo complements my work. They’re inseparable. Photography is a social activity, part of our daily lives. I practiced abstract approaches to art (installation, minimalism, etc.) for a long time. While they remain an inspiration, they did not meet my deepest longings. Three years ago I went back to photography. I could pair it with my work in social action, allowing my work and longings to be in full agreement.

My work is inspired by many photographers of our time, but above all it is inspired by the artistic practices of modern art. The work of artists such as Mondrian and Max Ernst for composition, Degas for blur are my main sources of inspiration. Edward Hopper matters a lot to me—the longing in his work. He gives us that feeling of the uncertainty of the moment, of drama that happens. For me, all of human reality is in his work. This is the type of accuracy I look for in photography.
