“Nocturnal Creatures” is a photography project about the humans of big Metropolis by night. What I was trying to do is to tell my own story through these people. All pictures are not staged, but rather a street photography, but I edited them my own way, erasing backgrounds and adding narrative elements to it. People in my images became city dwellers without the actual city. They look like actors on a theater stage playing their own stories about New York by night. Note: all images are treated as diptychs of two matching pairs intentionally.
I primarily use the photography medium as a creative tool lately. It gives me an advantage of capturing life around me in the most effective way possible. My work is a reflection of me, or my inner state in particular time and location through other people and objects I meet in my journey in and around NYC. My background in fine arts and painting lets me treat photography the way I would approach empty canvas, or sheet of paper. I do not stage, or influence my shots, but rather search and wait for the situation to occur and surprise me.
