INFANTO is a series of "alternative" portraits of the six-month babies. When we speak about little kids we instantly imagine nice pictures of funny cute infants surrounded by teddy bears, baby's dummies, toys and flowers. But behind this pinky-blue sweet cloud it is hard to spot a developing person. Sometimes you notice a sparkle of a “special knowledge” in the eyes of a baby. As if it is a wise creature in front of you. Usually we don’t see it on photographs. My ambition is to bring to light special aspects of infant’s character, to capture the moment of “baby’s thoughtfulness” or “infant's adulthood”. The black background and dark colors where chosen on purpose to separate the person from familiar but unnecessary colorful world of children’s vanity.
