My project Lost Masters explores concept of memory on three main levels.

First one is personal level. Project based on material that I shot in year 2010 during my visit to Italy. Then all was gone through computing crash.
I  try to recollect some personally important things from remain debris.
Second one is level of modern technology. I explore how computing memory that is  in fact very fragile and unreliable processes data that already lost.

Third level is Culture. Cultural memory that strangely remains despite loss of vast quantity of great peaces of art.

From these points I  look for something that reflects that process of disappearing very importing things and at the same time of coming into existence new pieces with another qualities but which are natural successors of great things of the past.
