What I like about photography is that it can be many different things: art, documentary, passion, money, social media, fashion, history, creativity, popularity, connections, etc. People get inspired by photography in so many ways that it’s safe to say it has become an integral part of the social and cultural anthropology of our times.

There are countless reasons why people take and make photographs. One of the most significant of them though is self-expression. Or you could say art, but to give a definition of art is something I’m not able to do; the whole concept is far too captivating for me and it should be left undefined and remain like that. A good form of self-expression usually relies on creativity, and photography makes no exception. Yes, it’s possible to come up with new and creative photographs these days, simply because photography is about unique moments in space and time filtered through who you are as a person - your technical abilities, your views of the world, your life principles and so on.
