OMAN IN DOUBLE EXPOSURE

Oman. I had never really wanted to go to the Middle East. We were guided towards it by our relentless travellers’ souls and by our daughter Petra.

Through the Imaginative Landscape of JMW Turner – Part 1., INTRO

JMW Turner is the predecessor of the Impressionists for me. I cannot stop being fascinated by his simple watercolour studies of the colour planes.

QEP certificate. There are things that require long-term work. They cannot be taken overnight; they need patience and lots of gradual steps.

Antoine de Saint Exupéry – Starting points

A lot has been written about Exupéry. My project, however, does not deal with a new biography or illustrations. I am attempting to find creative impulses in his life and translate them into the language of visual arts – and that is what makes my projects unique. It is highly probable that another person would pick completely different characteristics.

Antoine de Saint Exupéry

I am on the threshold of the last part of the literary triptych, this time dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. While both Mácha and Andersen were authors who helped me master specific photographic and expressional techniques, Exupéry is different. Exupéry is “my”  writer, I have a personal relationship with him, and for this reason, the whole project will be very personal.
