What makes black and white photography so important to you?

I see in colors but I feel in B&W.  As well as when I dream.  All my dreams are in black and white . I don’t remember one in color B&W can convey me . The simplicity and, at the same time, the complexity and nuances of whites and blacks can “make clear” the reality and life.


What inspires you to create photographs?

People, details, light, dark … life … everything that surrounds me.
Every day something catches my attention: it can be a normal situation or extraordinary. It does not matter. Everything can be “beauty”. And the camera shoots it.

Why is black and white photography so important to our future in the art world? 

Because it goes straight to the heart without deviations. Comes direct. And it is what we need now and tomorrow. Nowadays we are continually distracted or perhaps interested in redundancies. B&W brings us back to the truth, the essence. To us. Without interference.
