The shilouette of a black cat looking from the window to the snowflakes falling out.
This scene invokes a feeling of sweet melancholy.
I have two passions: art and photography.
My parents were painters. And I studied art and painting from childhood.
Then I also applied my knowledge of painting techniques with digital art.
My passion for photography started at the age of 10. I started to shot with a super-compact Kodak Instamatic 50!
I loved photography, and after a few years I started to develope and print to myself my B&W photos.
I tryed many darkroom techniques, like compositions, light masking, sunburns, photomontages.
Many years later, I had to stop with the developing my shots, and I reduced my photo-activity.
With the advent of digital, I re-started to photograph, and now I am in full activity!
My preferred subject are the cats. My cats, and oters, but not "simply" cats: I try to capture the soul of these subjecst, and to represent them with real portraits, which enhance their beauty and personality. I try to create shots that are not trivial, but with an aesthetic and a sense that goes "beyond" the "simple" picture of an animal.
But I like landscapes too, emotive shots, city shots, still-life, and others.
I still love the Black and White, and with the digital work I can reach the best results. Better than in the Darkroom.
