“The actual process of taking the photographs was rather spontaneous and instinctive, with openness, curiosity and incessant, acute observation being a decisive part of it. I tried to avoid over-thinking, or over-staging the photographs, prioritising the spontaneous, visceral response. Working outside the firm constraints and following the impulse instead of religiously chasing one theme or taking the beaten aesthetic path – those are the prevalent motifs in my work ethics. The phase of selecting and editing the imagery, as well as making the design-related decisions was far more structured, though even then, I was guided by the gut feeling and the emotional taking over the rational.”
