My photography is inspired by the paintings, music, and literature I enjoy. Whether it’s a feeling I get when I hear a moving song, read a passage or get lost in the depth of a painting, all of this combined influences me and I strive to express this impact in my photography. The arts and my own experiences give me the ideas for my projects and how I approach them.
In this project, I sought to capture the beauty of the beach and the presence of the people there. With these photographs I try to illustrate the special moments in life and all the small things that can be easily missed in the sprawl of everyday life.
By transforming the photograph to a painterly look, my images express the dreamy, peaceful and the romantic moments of life.
