My name is Sebastian Boatca, a photographer based in Brussels, Belgium and Vice-President of VIEWFINDERS – The Photography Club of Brussels and I embrace life through my experiences as a man, husband, father, traveler and photographer. The artistic expression is one of the ways we can blend into nature strings and communicate with the people around the world.
The way as I see the world is touched by both my life experience and my personality. All those glimpses of reality are filtered by what I call “a soul filter”. The result is a product of my own Self in a unique way, as I see time and space.
Photography is a way to express visions and feelings, worlds that emerge from melting the moment with some photographic tools, a way to connect people with different views of the same universe. A camera is a tool that captures a fragment of space in a moment frozen in time. The way each photo looks is a result of a unique inspiration, a set of factors that will never repeat again. This is why in photography it’s so important to pay attention to those factors, like awareness and experience, that build your own reality – your photography.
A life photographer means just that – record, filter, recreate reality through your own spirit.
