I am first to admit that I don’t play with my camera as much as I used to. No, actually scratch that, I don’t play with it at all. Every since photography became my work, it’s really just that – work. Majority of my personal photos are taken with an iPhone. I don’t take time to capture what’s around me and create beauty with it. I’ve realized it a long time ago, so during my vacation in Cuba I really wanted to reconnect with my camera. I wanted to see the smallest things and give them the same attention that I give to my clients. Once I looked at them with my photographer’s approach I could almost hear them calling me to take a photo of their beauty. It was everywhere, and it was addictive. In that moment everything reversed, and I forgot that people existed. That moment became about appreciating things that are too small for us adults to notice, yet every child would do. That moment turned me into a child again. And God, how I needed to feel like this.
