“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” — Karl Lagerfeld

In my photography I try to capture the moments of my life I want to remember. It’s usually something that caught my eye and captured the mana, the spiritual energy of power and strength of that special moment, when you know when,  to take the shot!
