I have just completed my third trip to the slot canyons of the American Southwest. It is a breathtaking place, somewhat challenging technically, extremely rewarding, and a sort of a spiritual experience. I would like to share a few thoughts about that place, about my photographic technique, and about the feeling of being there.
I have been inspired by the idealism of the American landscape and by its potential, and I feel a need to capture, to express, and to share it. I believe that there is something powerful and unique in that land that has the capacity to keep inspiring people to reach for their stars.
My day-to-day job requires me to travel a lot. I beat my own record by visiting forty-six countries in 2010. I wish I could travel everywhere with my large format camera.
The (Be)Longing series comprises fragments of a particular landscape. It is difficult for me to express in words what I see in them but I am certain that there are several interconnected layers to which I react emotionally.
