"How much do you have to do to satisfy people who don't care anyway..." - Saul Leiter
When I photograph someone I try to find and reveal the hidden sides of that person. I think every human being has an ocean of himself on the inside. Surfing there you can uncover a new uncharted world. We are all born unique, but because of the society we live in, many of us feel the need to be less or different than they could be. And out of fear and guilt we choose to hide and lose ourselves in order to be accepted by others.
The body, the gestures, the expressions of the face are manifestations of the soul. I think that all that we do and express is driven by something that hides in our depths. What I want is to pull out a glimpse of this. I want to catch and show the special and unique sides of humans - those things, emotions, feelings that people want to deny it, hide, fake or simply can’t afford to see.

-Sankalpa also means concept or idea; a concept is an idea.
-It is the determination or the will in the mind which precedes all actions.
-Τhe gods create the splendour of the phenomenal worlds, and the deceptive or illusory are bringing about realities that lack a certain degree of reality.
-Τhe great illusion,
-Α variety of psychological reflection,
-I stare into the space I occupy and space stares back at me even though I carry space within.
-Faces and spaces blend in and spin into an eternal cycle.
-What's beyond? What happens on the opposite side?
I speak about both sides without engaging in either one,
I converse with the here and now and with that space of beyond yet I sit in neither with comfort.
