“HER” is a photographic story that been created with the intention of an impersonal personality and simulated visual memory. In addition to winning awards in many different countries, numerous magazines and newspapers managed to take part in. “I wanted to create pictures that suggest stories and invite the audience to experiment with the boundaries between reality and fiction.“ All images in this series shot by expired Polaroid films as raw to tell the story of a schizophrenic lover to identify its personality.

My main focus is on life and moment. I'm also very interested in communicating the mood, the atmosphere of the places where I photograph. My goal as a photographer is to create the kinds of images which combine a strong sense of story .
