Why has your sister been your primary subject in your photography?

She has always been my inspiration. I like to photograph her, primarily because she is a very good model, and I also like the feeling of relaxation, freedom and security, because we’re sisters and we grew up together.  Her dream is to become a professional model and she likes to pose, and I like to take pictures.  We are great team. Because I have my sister for a model, the images  I capture are more natural and free. I like that feeling.

 Where do you draw inspiration for your concepts?

My sister is my main inspiration, but also a space where I live and what surrounds me inspires me.

I especially love fashion and clothes, so when I buy a new piece of clothing or find some old clothes, it always inspires me (I often buy clothes at second hands shops).

Also I get my inspiration from some colors, nature, strange and ugly places, weird stuff, love, natural look…

Where did you get your start in photography?

During my studies, I began to be interested more in photography, especially fashion photography.

Through fashion and fashion photography I show my sense of beauty and I present myself.

Do you have any upcoming projects in the works including your sister?  How about in general?

There is always something! As soon as I finish on photo shoot, I have an idea for another.

For the future I plan some exhibition photography.
