Artistic View

Concern of perfectionism in the means of composition and technical aspects, is one of the foreground in his works. 

The other foreground is the storytelling part that he builds over this formation, leave traces in the form of his personal expression. 

On the other hand, he prefers to leave open paths that are not directly visible within the exposure moment. So the viewers of his photographs may imagine about their own personal stories as well.

To reinforce this effect, he prefers a simple aesthetic expression. In the means of formation; geometric patterns, light and shadow transitions are often used meticulously.
