Series of pictures are the part of the book seriesnamed Towers of Patagonia.Patagonia is one of the most untouched region I have ever photographed, its wild Nature and weather hand by hand are creating amazing sceneries for photographers as well. In this particular series I tried to convey an artistic dimension of its monumental peaks. Pictures were taken in rather rough weather conditions and I needed much of optimism while taken in Patagonia(Argentina and Chile) showing different atmosphere in this untouched montain area, well known for the fast weather change and special clouds formations.

I was born and live in a beautiful historical city of Kosice, Slovakia. Since my youth age I was interested in art, in its various genres. Many years ago was studying also at art school where we focused on drawing and painting. I loved especially to paint oils on canvas. Beside that I started to discover a magic of the dark room and started to shoot on BW film and transparent. Later on, I 'vwe been taking pictures on digital. I soon realized that photography will be that wonderful and exciting journey for me.
