Favourite Photographer:

There are too many to mention. My influences are coming from the surrounding world and i like to delve into extremes and unseen obscurity but I was impacted by artistic imagery from the moment I browsed album with Hans Memling paintings as a child. Photographers that impacted how I learned photography would be very sensitive artists like Eve Arnold and Werner Bischof, committed passionates like Peter Beste and Nick Brandt, keen eyed for detail and composition Alex Webb, Martin Parr’s humour and Simon Norfolk’s approach to journalism or high fashion influencing photographers like David Lachapelle, Erwin Blumenfeld, Tim Walker and Helmut Newton. This is only few names from the top of my head. There is also a number of artists that influence how I see the world and I was always a great admirer of quite eclectic collection of painters just to mention Claude Monet with his way of capturing light, incredibly detailed paintings of Basawan, moody imagery of Ferdinand Bol, David Shrigley’s sense of humour and thorough but simple works of Edward Hopper or Hiroshige. I love number of expressionists and impressionists, the list is however very long and includes writers, sculptors, performers, musicians etc.
