About

Artist's Statement

The tension between time and space, or what happens between the camera and the subject is for me the most significant aspect of taking a photograph. I think of it as a dialogue, an exchange with room left for the unexpected, the unpredictable and the unseen with the “naked eye”.
In my works I have been avoiding storytelling and references of scale and time in order to unravel meaning. I remain most interested in exploring the relationships between culture and nature, or document (the perception of the real) and artifice (the deception of reality).

Black and white photography allows me to create the most straightforward, yet highly personal images of water, sky, land, the lotus flower or a person within the context of landscape, beliefs and most importantly myth.
My work process is very emotional and often challenging as I aim to establish a most intimate relationship and understanding of the subject.
