I love being in nature, it's variety and unique moments that it offers. In recent years I try to capture these moments on photos. If you are interested in my work, I gladly invite you to view my galleries.

What is a photography? This question can be answered either very easily, almost arbitrarily, or, on the contrary, very difficult, if we take it as a challenge to serious consideration. In the first case, we are content with knowing how to handle things, at a level so basic that we don't even have to think long about the answer: photography is a certain practice of making images. In the second case, we immerse ourselves in a tangle of theories, meta-theories, assumptions, conclusions, concepts... a tangle so complicated and so defying any final conclusion that we seem to have no choice but to repeat Augustine's maxim concerning time: "I know that , when no one wants me [at the time]; but if I should explain it to someone, I don't know.'

The answer will, as always, lie somewhere between these extremes. The practical handling of photography, its production and functioning, together with the theoretical concepts that co-constitute and interpret this practice, will shape the area in which we will look for answers to the basic question posed above. Along with this, it will be shown that even the title question itself is not fundamental at all. Perhaps it is even confusing in its focus; if we follow it consistently, it would most likely lead us to a certain formalistic point of view, to the search for the "essence" or "objective meaning" of photography. It could happen that the search for the "essence" of photography would obscure more "essential" questions, e.g. how photography works, how we define photography, how we talk about it, etc., i.e. questions in which the possibility of distinguishing between the photographic image and with the photographic medium, questions which show that it is not only a matter of taking photographs and viewing them, but also of their functioning on a practical and symbolic level.

Perhaps we could the titular (seemingly primary) question What is photography? Reframe and ask: Is photography art or not?
