Years ago, a photographer friend and I were invited to a television talk-show. We were asked a very good question by the host: what comes first, the photo, or the story? Well, as I primarily took nature and landscape photos at that time, it was not an easy question to me. However, I think I managed to give the answer that I still consider appropriate. Now, where is the story in a nature or landscape image? I believe it arouses from the inner happening, from the astonishment and marvel the view raises in the photographer’s mind and soul. It comes from the revelation that an autumn leaf represents the same miracle that fills your soul when you gaze at the Galaxy. Nowadays, I seldom take nature- and landscape photos, but I hope that, by sharing the images below, I am able to tell you the “story” that I have experienced.
