My experiments with scannography started from curiosity and a simple question: "what will happen if..?" I have never known or seen that someone else except me does scanning. Only after showing my works on Internet I found that there are some people who enjoy scanning as well. Amongst my scans you can find, not only flowers, papers and other everyday-life things, but also portraits (mostly they are selfportraits, but sometimes my friends also "pose" for me). I use minimum of Photoshop for my works: cropping, brightness-contrast and saturation.
By scanning I try to understand and imagine how things, emotions and feelings would look if to observe them by different "eyes" and in different "time". Inside a scanner everything seems special, space has unexplainable deepness, colours are becoming surreal and ordinary things are getting "overworlded" mysteries..
