I started photographing from a very good reason. As a goldsmith, I wanted to sell my jewelry online and I needed good photos. From there the road to photographing as a creative outlet was relatively short. Much shorter than the road to define to myself what is it that I really love to photograph and develop a personal signature style.
Why did I think of it now? Because since I remember myself I love gardens, and English rose gardens are at the top of my favorite ones. The white garden in Sissinghurst is something to be seen to be believed. There is a quality of fairy tale fantasy that can not be conveyed in words.
For the last 2 days I have been photographing a single rose in the garden. A pale pink one. But as beautiful as this rose is, taking a documentary shot of it did not express at all the sensuality of its petals. The delicacy and fragility of it. The impermanence - tomorrow it will start wilting, in a few days it will not be here at all. But now, today, it is just perfect.
The essence of a rose. This is what I want to photograph.
