I discovered my passion for photography on my 8th birthday, while unwrapping a gift from my grandmother. Inside the box, a Minolta film camera. I wasn’t attracted to the object per se, but to what it represented: a possibility. Suddenly, I could tell with an image what I couldn’t with words.
Soon, photography became a way of expressing my love for nature; I would spend afternoons photographing flowers or trying to capture the softness of my bunny’s fur. My camera became the first thing in my suitcase, the one item I couldn’t leave without.
Many film rolls (and SD cards) later, I now gravitate towards landscapes with minimal human presence: these images are for me a symbol of the fragile power of nature, a hymn to the beauty of this planet and a reminder that it is our duty to protect it.
