With my work I attempt to have a subversive approach to the photographic medium and address how we perceive images, what we read into them and what we expect to find. Beautification, the sublime, revealing yet not revealing, the supposed truthfulness of an image as well as the artificial aspect of photography are all areas I attempt to question. I am intrigued by the idea of treating photography as a language we don't understand, and by working intuitively I am interested in whether the results come closer to an honest and unexpected response to the medium and what I see around me. I like to think of my photographs as open-ended picture poems, constructed scenes made entirely for the camera.
