Photography chose me and it has been a part of my life since my teens when I worked with black and white photography and became interested in photo historical processes such as cyanotype and salt paper. Today I work digitally and it offers completely different possibilities where I am not limited by the film's few exposures. The approach I have maintained from spending hours and days in the laboratory is the importance of the physical image on paper. Images on the screen quickly disappear while an image on paper remains in memory.
My hope in image creation is trying to move the senses by intensifying reality and through this lay a foundation for reflection within the viewer. A starting point is often a place, a dilemma, the process involves an investigation and an exploration, not entirely different from the approach I had earlier in my career when I worked as a photojournalist. However, my intention is not to explain reality but rather to ask questions. Life and our world interests me and just working abstractly would deprive me of the opportunity to evoke more than a purely aesthetic experience. For an image to touch us, it is not enough that it reminds us of life, but it must have a life of its own to reflect life.
