My career as a graphic designer has made me a chameleon of visual styles and this greatly influences my photography as well. Despite the variety of techniques, my art revolves around certain recursive themes. The core concept is best described as “man vs. world” for I am continually observing how the protagonist of man affects and is effected by the world around him.
