Ordinary - extraordinary people

The aim of my work is to show the individuality of those chosen. To show their taste, believes and objects of interest. My work shows the reality of living in a block of flats. It shows people who fight against the stereotypes and rules. It reveals their true faces.
The main characters of my work are my neighbours and also people from different cities. What they all share is living in a block and their extraordinary life. I show their flats, their own space which they transformed into a kind of asylum, or shelter, their own world. I believe that people show me their own uniqueness.
My photos are slightly ironic. They show collectors, who are unique because of their passions. Yet, the things they gathered took their space. I think it became their obsession.
