“This was a time I intentionally failed to drop bread crumbs for my return journey; instead, I ate them. “
- Andre Aciman (Call me by your name)
welcome to my silent kingdom. My digital canvas and outlet of stockpiled memories. I'm a small town boy drawn to nature and full of admiration for those people who manage to live life without letting this world go to waste. I like to take quiet pictures and make naïve choices, I'm a vivid dreamer and restless traveler. I find comfort in the loneliness of cities and in the fury of wilderness. My artistic voice lies in the creation of photographic series about the unity of men and nature and the struggle and misunderstanding guarding this way.
On the photographs page you'll find a small portfolio of selected pictures. In stories I'll gather my personal projects and most recent series. Feel free to contact me. Ask me anything, share your opinion or get me involved in your own vision.
Thanks for dropping by! Domi
