Natural Presence

Human beings without a particular external identity, but with an esoteric one. All are present in their own truth, expressed in a directly intimate way. I call this kind of image prosopo-graphy. It is coming from the ancient Greek word prosopo which means the essence or natural reality of a person. The photographic process is a spontaneous choreography based on empathy and dominated by rhythm, transcending space and time. In this new vertical time, according to Plotinus, beauty identifies with spirit. The same applies...

Innerscapes

In landscape photography, place is interior. The photographer achieves a visual realisation of his or her feelings for the world, of how they experience existence.

Nostalgia

What exactly is nostalgia? The term “nostalgia” derives from the Greek words nostos (return) and algos (pain). Indicating that it is the suffering evoked by the desire to return to one’s place of origin.

If we stay connected to our own feelings of nostalgia without dramatizing but just being present, embracing them, then we can find ourselves leaving the horizontal time we usually live in, entering...

Bamboos

Before the window, slender, jade-colored bamboos sing when the cool rains fall, with a rustling sound. Their feathery green intruding at my desk, they know there is no purer hidden spot than this. Isho Zen poet
