“When we are small children, just- arrived- in- the -planet people, we know things which we gradually forget as we grow up. This is why I chose to open Forgotten Paradise with images of my children when they were babies: There was absolutely no limit to the fun and the creativity they could experience, no boundaries for growth and development, there was absolutely nothing wrong in life, the adventure had just started and it was to be fully enjoyed. This is clear when you watch babies; there is the constant drive to discover and to learn. That is paradise, children’s paradise can often be polluted by adults, yet during the initial first years of life, chances are that kids will still remember and hold on to the fact that their potential is limitless, this is how we are born, this is how we are made. This is how we are supposed to stay. The main thing was to find beautiful picturesque spots to create striking frames where to place our story, we got some good ones but I was left feeling that I needed to spend much more time on this task, days, even months of taking photographs in locations with my cast, before filming. Finding the perfect image frame by frame. It is a crucial necessity of spend time and give as much thought as passion to image composition, finding immaculate frames that reveal the magic of light and color blended with mood and concept during the process of creation. Art is a mixture of hard work, intuition, luck and magic all driven by passion or love which are to many effects one and the same thing.”
