Video summary: Nocturnal Mood Of Time In Motion

Nocturnal Mood Of Time

The Short Story:

In my photography I try to show the beauty of space superimposed with the natural treasures of our own planet Earth and to discover, together with you, the grandness but also the fragility of our world. Something we are very lucky to be able to experience.

These photographs offer a view at a much larger, and slower, picture than we've grown accustomed to in our modern fast-paced reality of fleeting moments. An experience which is both archaic in its nature and universal across whole of humanity.

In my products I try to find the most suitable and high quality way for you to be able to take a small piece of this Universe home and to enjoy it lastingly.

********************************************

The Long Story:

Photography and time have always been deeply intertwined. In this photographic project the concept as well as the passage of time is represented both historically and metaphorically.

The visual style calls back to the aesthetics of the Pictorialism movement, popular between the end of the 19th and the early 20th centuries, while the works of Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen present the major sources of influence and inspiration for me.

The preference of dark blurry scenes as well as specific tonality and mood imparted on the picture by the artist's own personality were at the core of the pictorial expression due to the interest of emulating paintings and elevating photography to a high-art status.

This, in my opinion, presents a very interesting connection back to the essence of photography and the word itself, which can roughly be translated from Greek as "painting with light".
As I've been deeply interested in starry skies from an early age, I hence chose the star-light to be the painter in my pictures.

But there is a deeper meaning to this choice as well. Each bright speck in the sky is a star, which has sent its light hundreds and sometimes even thousands of years ago on its way to Earth, where it was eventually photographically captured.

It is awe-inspiring to wonder what the humanity and Earth looked like at each of those past moments, but also to realize that each photograph shows a collection of light from completely different epochs, combining them into one centuries-encompassing picture.

This realization might bring back a sense of wonder, magic and mystery, which surrounded photography in its early age, to one viewer or the other, despite today's omnipresence of imagery.
While at the same time we are empowered to mindfully explore the larger and slower world around us.
