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).
