I have become aware that my photos tell something about myself and my inner life. Now that I am able to consciously use photography as a means to express emotions, I feel like a more complete person. When I started experimenting with pinhole photography in early 2020, I quickly noticed that this style of photography radiates a deep emotional honesty to me, a subjective truth. The combination of black and white, graininess, blur and the infinite depth of field fit well with the character of emotions that often cannot be defined unambiguously and concretely, the emphasis is on the atmosphere.
