..heart-touching
..breath-taking
..eye-catching

..these pieces have left prints in my soul

After ten years of work as a freelance photographer and a hundred of exhibitions around the world,
I would like to celebrate it by creating high quality art photography book called "10 YEARS".
Unique personally signed book with my photographs from years 2007-2017. 
My goal is to publish a large over 100-page book through 
fundraising platform here.
Many details during printing and binding separate a good book from a great book.
I want this to be a great book which will draw attention of every person visiting your home.
And also a piece of art to keep you company on those quiet saturday nights when you are hiding from the world.


UPDATEDMy crowdfunding book project was successfully finished!

Now I work on the book. It will be published during summer 2017.

All contributors will receive the book not later than the end of September.

You can still pre-order the book HERE.

Towards The Sun
I created this piece for DeviantArt's upcoming Pride Month project -- which is launching on May 31st. In the Pride flag, the color yellow represents sunlight/energy, uplifting positive thinking, coming out, facing truth, happiness, poetic moment, self-love, freedom. And I took following thought as a main idea: "Turn your face towards the sun and the shadows fall behind you". My artwork is called "Towards The Sun". The little bird on her shoulder is a symbol for freedom and the little branchlet stands for something which grows and gets better and stronger. Like little branchlet grows to strong tree. 

Journal:  Celebrate Pride: Your Art, Our Pride FlagYour art can help inspire change! Choose a color from the Pride flag and use it to create a work of art that will be united into one extraordinary creation.
