Exhibition. Black & white self-portraits in landscapes. A visual diary, a chronicle of places and emotions. Includes recent works. 
My passion is portrait. And landscape. And travelling. I try to combine them. My landscapes are portraits of nature. The naked body becomes landscape. Portrait, nude, landcape, and self-portrait are united to form a single image. Within it, I become a part of nature. Even the most beautiful place might not be chosen if I don’t “feel” it. A place should allow me to discover myself, I have to “fall in love” with it. Perhaps that is why I stand naked in landscapes. Eve in the garden of paradise? Perhaps. My auto-portraits show a world which is beautiful, pristine, romantic. A world that could be, that is, in fact, it just needs to be rediscovered. The “World Watching” series is a visual diary, a chronicle of places and emotions. A lot of fun, fear sometimes, enchantment, and dissappointment.
Simply put – I love to be landscape.
