It is my passion to portait my photographs as art, non perfect pictures of ordinary things, captured and enlarged to expose the beautiful detail that people ignore.
The images are about what is private and what is public and where the line that divides the two lies, whether that line exists at all anymore.
They are about the popular culture that we share and the way the culture leaves its imprint on individuals in their most public and private moments.
With this work i wanted to make the viewer question what they see to create an instant emotion of enigma.
Strong contrast and limited light in some cases can produce a hard and somewhat morbid effect, which I like.
It’s my hope to create an intimate conversation that takes the viewer to a place of quiet contemplation.
To create a sense of mystery and confusion as what one person assumes is different from another.
The unknown element of what is real or not real makes the viewer really think about what they are seeing.
I use photography as a means of self-expression, to make pictures for myself, and to identify with hidden qualities of my character, to better understand reality, and to express my interpretation of the world around me.
To also interact with people I would otherwise not be able to engage with.
My goal is to capture each moment that i wish to remember, to freeze sections of time and to open an unexplored world, a place of curious self expression, but also a world of new relationships, new chances new beginnings and most importantly new stories.
Photography is one way that I am able to experience the moment, suspend time and enjoy the present.
