Photography to me at first glance, is my way to answer my curiosity. It is merely a hobby, there was nothing personal.
I merely take pictures to capture interesting things or moments. However, when i look at my photograph, one day, one week, or a month later, the photograph becomes very personal to me. It evolves into a kind of emotive memory, giving me a chance to memorize life itself, and see it closely, deeply.
A photograph is a record, not just a record of a moment but a record of a feeling, a mystery of life, an answer and also a question. Reality and emotive memory become a formula to make a fictional historical record. All photographs in this Nothing Personal are my records, my journey, and questions and feelings that hit me in my hometown, Solo.
