I like to sit on images for some time after I come from trips, absorb them and work on them at a rather slow pace. I do so as I learnt over years that I need some emotional distance if I want to process more 'objectively', without panting of impressions from places.

I decided to organize it by country, at least until I get some of my projects finished so that I will be able to present photographs under some other headline.Read More
