Time flies... Today is exactly 10 years since I joined DeviantArt community. It was quite a trip so far. When I look back I see the way I have behind me. You can see it too in my gallery. At least that part of my way which concerns my creativity and artistic development. But not only that. Just like many of you I've been through a lot to get where I am today. If you look closely enough you can understand how this could influenced my view of the world and find its reflection in my works. In a way I'm grateful for all that has happened to me. Because of this, I don't swim only on the surface and I'm not the shallow person. I have the opportunity to look and feel deeper, and there are pearls hidden at the bottom.
By this time DeviantArt has become my window to the world. A place where I can show the fruits of my labor. Thanks to my stay here I found out how many awesome and crazy talented people are out there. Among other things this helped me to understand that the world is and still could be a better place than I thought in my turbulent youth. My activity helped me grow as an photographer and go ahead with my artworks. Although I recently focused more on taking pictures, I started here by sharing my drawings. I haven't finished any art school or photography courses. I don't have expensive equipment. So my efforts can be a great example of that something meaningful and well worth the attention can be achieved by anyone, who have the heart and passion for it. DeviantArt is still a source of inspiration for my imagination. I still admire and learn a lot from people who publish their works here.
First thing I submit to DeviantArt on 23-11-2007
What I'm currently best known for is my photography. This passion was born from my love of nature in which I find freedom. My main motivation was to share it with others. I'm not a very open person. It took me a while to figure it out, how I would like to show and share my view of the world. To show that there's a beauty in the dark, that everything isn't always what it seems. I have the impression that I succeeded in some way, but it's definitely not the end. I believe we can look in nature as in a mirror and better understand ourselves, since we're a part of it and we are connected with it on many levels. I think it's important to remind of it in a world that has largely turned away from nature. No one ever knows what the future will bring but I hope it will take me to new interesting places in photography and in art. There are still new things for me, waiting to be discovered.
I would like to say thank you to all my watchers. Those who have been with me before and the new ones as well. Thank you for staying with me for such a long time and for all the support I received from you. Hope I'll see you around in the future. Take care of yourselves!
