This project originates from the current situation in photographic media itself: a spectacular abundance of visual images which prevents people from concentrating on the photograph itself. My aim is to create an extremely sober image represented by aesthetics of black and white. To make things more complex and attractive I attempt to build up a certain mise en scėne, a sort of glowing sculpture which forms the basis for a fine art type of photography born from light.
