A modus operandi of mine, that is, the printing technique I employ to create my images, is called oil printing and it isn't something I personally invented. True, this process is quite old: its origins go back to 19th century. For me as an artist, to adopt this expressive method was a fully conscious move, made after four years of shooting digital photography and another four years of shooting various types of film stuff. I believe that modern photographic industry suffers a lot from overloading with sophisticated technical tools and instruments. When one asks himself "What camera should I buy?" before another, way more important question "What do I want to take picture of?", society has an aestetic issue. To me, this is a sign of the death of photography as an artistic phenomena.

   So, as a reaction to the overwhelming "technologism", I chose to create my works by hand. This often results in a print which is impossible to reproduce even for the author himself. I call this substantial non-reproduceability of the work of art a singularity.

Fabulous gallery!  One can tell that your attention is firmly on the subject, and presenting them as more than just an element of your composition.  This personal attention is something that I feel is becoming less common in our age of easily-taken and -deleted digital imagery, and it's refreshing to see it alive and well from time to time.
