I am an enthusiastic machine learning engineer/software developer. Currently, I live and work in Munich. I have worked on several different innovative projects in the filed of AI (data extraction, object detection, state prediction …). I am eager to accept new challenges or projects.
In 2014, as I was a student, I wanted a change, a challenge, I wanted to learn about the world better. I couldn’t say I have travelled a lot until then. I heard about Camino in Spain and it instantly caught my attention.
I couldn’t stop thinking about it. There was no doubt … I HAD to take it. I started my journey in France in the Pyrenees and ended it by the Atlantic Ocean in Spain. Along the way, I met people all around the world (I was surprised by the number of South Koreans and how popular this path is among them). I had a privilege of hearing different life stories. What drove them here? Why are they here? What are they looking for? I started my journey with the desire for change. Along the way, I got so much more than I expected. The journey was a complete opposite of my studies. I started to realize that I took everything for granted (I was surprised how much I missed the refrigerator full of food … This is not something to be taken for granted, it is a wonderful gift).
I learned that nothing should be taken for granted. I have been walking for 40 days and learned about persistence. I realized that discomfort and challenges are not opposite of happiness and joy, but just different ingredients (like chilli in a good curry).
I am an admirer of the world and nature. I try to look at things from different perspectives, because only then you can realize that the world is multidimensional. We do not live in a linear and static world. Everything is moving, changing, flowing. That is why I think the questions are more important than the answers. Answers give you a temporary solution and satisfaction. But the questions are the ones encouraging you to discover, go on and adjust … They encourage you to move.
That is how I see photography as well. It requires treating every moment and every situation uniquely. It requires looking at things from different perspectives. We cannot just put things on paper or a screen. The story is important. What lies behind the moment?
