Living in Northern California for 25 years I was not aware of harsh climate of beautiful Lake County until recently. It is an amazing place with stunning landscapes, very hot summers and quite cold winters. Not many regular California plants could survive and prosper there. There is only a couple of native trees proven to be right for the area, and the grasses are very strong and adoptive. To continue the genome process in these extreme circumstances, nature has developed it’s special way to do so by creating the strong vessels to save the seeds of the future generations and hold them until the conditions are right to spread them around. These vessels – cones, pods, acorns – have an extremely powerful presence and contain an immense beauty, which drawn me to start the “GRANA” (Latin for "SEEDS") series and to celebrate the beauty of the nature.

The Platinum/Palladium printing is one of the oldest and the most beautiful photographic processes ever existed. The amount of shades in the final print is almost endless. This gives you an exciting opportunity to rethink the whole process of image creation, from an initial conception to the final print. Each hand-made print is one of the kind - they are printed on 100% cotton watercolor rag paper, coated individually with carefully chosen emulsion formula, an exposition time and the developing process. The brush strokes from the coating process are enveloping an image by forming an intricate and unique frame.
