About the artist:

What Eyes Don't See

I am unveiling an unseen through digital photography and state-of-the-art processing. I invite a viewer into the tale of abstraction governed by supreme laws of nature's order and harmony.

"True Real", world as we perceive it, seems to be chaotic, lawless and unpredictable. Ever since being a student of mathematics, I was attracted by the elegance and harmony of mathematical formulae apprehending the underlying order and structures of nature. That is why I love sand dunes - their perfect harmonious lines demonstrate the order of physical laws shaping them. 

In mathematics, the common thread is the search for order via abstraction. Along this way I am transforming my pictures.

Today's hi-tech camera's sensors enable recording details and colors which human eyes do not see - the "New Real". Sophisticated softwares provide all kinds of tools for uncovering, boosting and presenting the unseen. Through a lot of experimentation using creative manipulations I pursue a path from the seen entropy towards the abstract unseen.

The final work offers a narrative space of allegories, freedom of interpretation, new associations, space built on the underlying principal laws of nature's order and harmony.
