For me, taking photographs means distancing myself from time and space, from prefabricated images. I trust in the spontaneous impression on which my subjects are based at the moment when I take the picture. Moments captured with the camera and heightened through the artistic process lend intense and permanent form to transience.
The aim is the expansion of the photographic gaze. Drawing on printing technology and painting, I develop a unique materiality of the image using surfaces that produce interesting light effects, such as metal foils and light boxes. The reflective surface of aluminum as a "canvas" reflects the viewer in the image. This disrupts the rigid, cool metal character of the surfaces.
The position of the viewer shifts along with his or her perspective. The viewer experiences motion in the image as well as his or her own motion in space.This creates a constant succession of perspectives and insights.
The body, the surface on which the photo is printed, and the space enter into a dialogue. My photographs thematize reflections and surfaces in urban spaces and in liquids. Water, like light, fascinates me because of its transparency and reflections. My images are not calculated; the longing for the image remains.
