"Embarking on my photographic journey, I began by capturing anything that sparked my curiosity. However, amidst the diverse subjects, I found my lens gravitating towards the intricate world of architecture. Perhaps it was a reflection of an unfulfilled dream to become an architect myself.

Immersing myself in this visual narrative, I became captivated by the delicate interplay of functionality and aesthetics within architectural marvels. Each structure told a unique story through lines, shapes, and shadows, and I found myself drawn to the artistry embedded in these constructions.

What fascinated me most was the ability of my lens to transcend reality. Through my photographs, I discovered the power to reshape and reinterpret the world of architecture, presenting it in a way that went beyond mere representation. This journey, fueled by a passion for both the tangible and the abstract, continues to be a source of endless inspiration."
