10 years ago two big events happened in my life. I was given my first professional camera, and I packed my life in a suitcase and moved away from my home country to USA. Having to live and study in a country different than the one I grew up in made me realize that exploration and immersion in different cultures was what fulfilled me the most, and photography was a way to define my experiences. Through photography I developed my adventure spirit, and together they’ve taken me to breathtaking places around the world and allowed me to create imagery that reflects my personal definition of exploration. This collection of photographs is a deeper insight into places around the world that have inspired me to keep exploring.
