About me

For me, photography is a medium to transform and to share stories with and among others; it's a way to help us understand the world around us. 
My personal work deals with memories, displacement, and the sorting out of past and present issues. 

I am interested in the language of the body and am deeply moved by the notion that people's eyes can tell so much about the world around us. 

My aim is to capture something from this life and the moments and atmosphere that is in front of us right now—to help reveal the things that we are often just too blind and busy to see and observe. 
With my images I want to challenge the viewer and to make them think. I like to give the audience an opportunity to make their own interpretations of my images and to create their own stories.
