What makes your art special? What is it about – what are the central themes of your work?

When I take a portrait , will see it most of the time as landscape and think of colors as if it will be a painting. Will try to capture the essence of either the artist I photograph or the anonymous in my frame. Portraits of artist in entertainment  or portraiture of  selected faces embracing different cultures.
