Damir May

We live in distracting times with high expectations for gratification, and low expectations of beauty. The pace is too fast for our instinctive inner selves. This makes me sad. I ask you to join me, to slow down, to observe the natural eternal beauty around us. On my journey I capture the many moments, the duration, the lines, colours, and textures of life.

Waiting for Helena

When your love affair is like something from a movie, and your marriage, although only two and a half years along feels like you’ve known each other your whole life, waiting for your first child to be born is like waiting for the perfect gift.

First Day

The love that a mother has for her child is unconditional. With this love she is capable of overcoming all the hardships of an earthly existence. This breathtaking composition, done in lapis lazuli pigment, consists of 11 whole figure portraits and 3 animal portraits. This commission, for a private collection, was both divine and challenging.
