photography is
a language of expression -
the art of seeing
as Freeman Patterson says.

this art equals a dialogue
between the photographer´s ideas
or intuition and the way he perceives
and explores reality.

concerning this point of view,
I regard the nature of imaging
as an expedition into the unknown.
this implies a sense of conceptual focus
and minimalism.

outstanding scholars such as anselm adams,
man ray, lucien clergue as well as the
young finnish school of photography
inspire my way to learn about patterns of reality
and the built-in codes of aesthetic beauty.
