I try to create pictures that mute the chaos of the modern world, find the wonder in tiny details of the everyday, the extraordinary in the mundane. Things that are anywhere and everywhere, not easily distinguished or interpreted; feelings, childhood memories, intimate moments, pieces of experience once unexceptional and yet precious.

These pictures are not a pure documentation of what is real. Instead, I have chosen to embark on a journey that is more internal and emotional. Ι am pursuing a form that is open-ended, almost deliberately ambiguous by constructing a dissolved and amorphous reality." Read less
