It was the year 2013 when I decided to start a 365-day project. That meant one self-portrait a day. The purpose of this project was to learn more about portrait photography and myself.

Somewhere in the middle of the project things started to change - my wishes started to change. I wanted to learn more about creating stories with my images and not just posing. I started to use my body in combination with props to express my emotions and to tell a story in each image. An inspiration for the images I get from my life, my favorite stories, movies, life situations, feelings and emotions. Photographing self-portraits became some sort of run from reality, where I can transfer my frustrations, ideas and thoughts into new stories.

After my project 365-day, I finished two other series - String of life and Raven. And the third series is already in progress.

With my images, I try to encourage the viewer to become part of the story and maybe even find his own story in them.

So... here they are, some of my favorite images.
