I use the camera to record the objective world and the subjective world. Even after post-processing, it says more than just what the eye sees: the true feelings of the soul, which is what I need the real world!

I find photography to be hazy, poetic, sentimental and elegant.

I am in the exploration of the intellectual, spiritual and emotional world.

Perhaps this is the way I see the world, I hope we can with me, take a look at all of this, to think, to sentiment, and concerned about all this ...

Borrow the words of Balthus, "I'm always looking, but always dissatisfied".
