Windows and Mirrors
As an outcast child, I almost got used to living without friends.
When I discovered photography, I taught myself to use the camera as a bridge between myself and the world around me.
I learned to gather courage and do what I thought was almost impossible, to approach a stranger on the street and say- "Hello. Can I take your portrait?"
It began with performance anxiety but soon became a way of life, almost an obsession. In many cases, what started with that simple question became a conversation, which turned into a friendship.
Those strangers allowed me to look trough the window of their soul and in return, they allowed me to see myself, reflected, like in a mirror, in their eyes.
As an outcast child, I almost got used to living without friends. Now, with the camera in my hands, I learned to create friends everywhere I go.
