Artist Statement

“Photography to me is a means to dissect life: I aim to explore, capture and transmit my inner world in order to better understand it. As long forest walks are a key part of my roots, nature has become my language in doing so. Guided by intuition I capture what resonates with me, the index rarely is the subject. Looking at endless details and abstraction, I find consolation in the overlooked. As a result, a new world emerges in my work.”
