What is photography?For me personally, photography is a way of living, breathing and noticing the world around me. It's a separate world in itself in which I am allowed to relax, be embraced, and breathe freely.Hello everyone! My name is Vanya , 36, and this is my visual path, paved with scenes from the childhood , time spent with family and friends, love and by people and opportunities that are yet to come.My fascination with photography begun in 2006. Over time, this has become what defines me and fills every pore of my body. The start was marked by photographs of birthdays, family celebrations and nature. Late, I developed a perception of details from the perspective of art and symmetry and I realized that I could use this medium to express my inner states. I think that photography gives life a stamp of existence. In other words, seemingly unimportant moments captured by photography frequently appear, from the perspective of time, as if they represent the core of our lives. These days I use every free moment to be with camera, capturing: birds in flight at unusual angles, the sound of flies, the sight of wrinkled faces with a distant looks that only last a few seconds. As photographers, we try to be prepared for moments that occur and disappear in instants. Sometimes when Iâm successful in this race against time, I feel not only happy but filled, used to my full capacity.There are plenty of photographers whose work I do respect and who have influenced me, although I would not single out anyone by name, but I would thank everyone for the inspiration and support. I also find inspiration in everyday life - often going too fast if one doesnât observe it. Photography needs to provide not only a visual representation, but also contain the idea of the person or situation. One of the topics that I was always inspired by were portraits of men in their time. Human faces have a miraculous ability to communicate and my wish is that with this project I will come closer to all passionate observers of life by participating in documenting moments and stories that are continually passing us by, unrecorded.
