Light and shadow impress me very much. I created many images of small villages that often seem deserted, because I’m on the road at midday.
I want to show this rural life, describe how people live in villages that only have a bus every hours or two. The solitude.. yes, that’s my subject, also village life and beyond, you can see this in my landscapes and other styles of photography I practice.
I take pictures with Pentax cameras, initially a K10 and now a K5 and almost always with fixed focal lengths, usually 15mm or 21mm and periodically 70mm. I use Lightroom and Nik software to post process.
