Minimal animal, that’s my personal DIY project, an ongoing experiment with different lenses and lighting, a whole new world that I have been trying to photograph for several years now. For me, an amazing trove of shapes and colors, animals so unbelievable that I often wonder what Mother Nature has achieved to create. Always surrounded by this surreal life forms which are in general neglected and treated with disdain as something creepy and best to be avoided. I have spent most of my free time in our national parks, just to show a side of nature that’s only visible through a macro lens, animals otherwise invisible to us. I hope that you will enjoy my work, an attempt to show you this virtually alien world in all its incredible forms created after millions of years of evolutionary refinement.
