Published on Digital SLR Photography magazine - including Sony photo...
Nov 17, 2012

I've been published on Digital SLR Magazine (December issue), and this deserves a few words...

And here they are, the images, the pieces of me melted onto sacred landscapes. Definitely a positive accomplishment, yet not for one moment received with any feelings of superiority, because I can still remember that yesterday I was tiny, oblivious of the fact that we are all gods, as long as we keep on pursuing our dreams...

I can still remember going to the local magazine store on purpose, and looking at those expensive english magazines, filled with great photos, sucking up all of the information inside them.

On a side note... it looks like Sony and Pentax shots are also published... Who would say?!
