I was never interested in depicting reality as it is – the escapism and interdisciplinary hybrid-thinking have always been fascinating me. Saturated colors and dark spaces, fabulous costumes, uncanny characters, quirky stories and unexplainable ideas– these are the elements that keep hypnotizing me whenever I plan a new photographic project.
