I work with analogue cameras and shoot black and white film. My
attention has turned towards photographing abstract still lifes, or
rather, I find myself taking pictures of light itself, using objects
to capture the play of light and shadow and the visual rhythm between
these two siblings, the sometimes faded border between them, their
reflections, opacities. Play is essential to my practice. I am
continually falling in love with shapes, forms, beautifully broken
things.
I approach my subjects with an analytic attitude, later creating
larger-than-life-sized images of tiny wonders in the darkroom. In this
way I am able to showcase the minute details invisible to the naked
eye, revealing a hidden world that speaks in the intuitive language of
emotion, unlike its hardened opponent, the intellect. My intention is
to slow down the viewer, to get them lost in the details, by following
patterns and forms that the mysterious phenomenon of light inevitably
draws.

Please be aware that this is analog photography. The hand made prints
are retouched but due to the technique (unlike the digital perfect
prints) my works do have little imperfections, which I believe add to
the value of the photographs. Looking at them from a distance they
look perfect, and the closer one goes to them the small flaws may
appear - which makes them unique and original. Also, working with
fiber paper does not allow mm precision, as the paper expands when wet
and shrinks when dries, so please calculate with 5% variation in size
(meaning: if possible, order your frames and passepartouts after you
receive the print).
