It is said that the development of photography is deeply tied in with painting.

Starting from the idea that "something exists there",I create a space to photograph not only by capturing a scene before my eyes, but also through the process of transposing images seen in the mind into actual colors and shapes. 
In so doing, I seek a sensual engagement with the surrounding environment that is included in the act of seeing.
