Entry Description

The project is dedicated to HCA way of seeing and presenting world around us. Reading his fairy tales or stories, I am always fascinated by his rather scatting style, altering between world of children and world of grown up. Generally, there is no intention on my side to create pictures to Andersen´s stories, I rather look around me and create the pictures "in the shoes" of HC instead. I try to look around me in the way he was writing his stories. What is hidden, what is clear, what is good and what is bad - isn´t it all the time changing?

About Photographer

I confess that all my life I have been attracted by the romanticism and positive tone of an image. I still feel that I am considerably influenced by master painters who worked with light, colour and contours of a landscape from Turner to Monet and Cezanne to Sima. I am fascinated by the sensed mystery and anticipated story of a landscape.
