My work is rooted in associations. It triggers the imagination of the spectator by referring to collective feelings. This is accomplished through the themes of longing, recollection, alienation, loss, and the transitory. These themes are layered and create tension that slowly reveals the emotions within the image. I capture what is latently present, but not normally visible in society. My process is to work calmly and meticulously at night and in quiet abandoned places. I use diverse staging and illumination techniques with 4x5, digital and Hasselblad cameras.
