Art has always been part of my life. While I studied and later on worked in different fields, art never went away and I realised it was what made me most happy. It then became my path.
I started out self-taught but later completed my studies with the Photographic Institute in the UK and also took courses at the Kensington & Chelsea College and London Met University.
I am in love with light in its many forms and colours. I am fascinated by the ways it interacsts with and changes our world. What I try to convey in my pictures is atmosphere and emotion. I love little details and seeing beauty in the most ordinary things and I am hugely inspired by textures and shapes of natural world.
I live and work in Bratislava, Slovakia. However I travel in search of inspiration and imagery for my work. I speak fluent English and some Italian, French and German too. I am open to new collaborations so please do get in touch.
how prints come to life
I shoot most of my work on black and white film. The rolls of film must be develped and then scanned so that I can present images digitally.
Physical prints are hand made by myself in darkroom using traditional wet process with chemicals in trays. Technically speaking they are silver gelatin prints, because paper used in this process is coated with an emulsion containing particles of light sensitive silver. It is the silver that reacts with chemicals in developer which makes the image appear magically before your eyes.
The prints are archival quality which means they will last you for life if you handle them with proper care.
info on editions
Photographic prints are collectible as any other art form. My work is already part of a collection in China and France and it also decorates space in many private homes.
I sell my work in both limited and open editions.
In limited editions the number of prints in each size is normally limited to 40. The prints come signed and with certificate of authenticity.
Prints in open editions are smaller size.
