ABOUT ME
__________

I am a filmmaker working in video, sound and photography and am primarily concerned with questions about the mystery of time, memory and its infinite combinations and interactions of layers and the secret language of buildings.

PRINTS_____________All Limited Edition prints produced for the artist by Konstexpo, Stockholm.

TRIVIA_____________Since 1991 I work as a civil servant (as Deputy Chief County Heritage Advisor) at a County Administrative Board 100 kilometers south of Stockholm. My daytime work involves different aspects of restorations of old buildings such as manor houses, churches, listed buildings et cetera.
