I am a restless traveler, who keeps on leaving, but never arrives.
I have been taking pictures of interiors since 2002. In the beginning I worked in worn out, rejected buildings, later I concentrated on private homes.
I never travel along a pre-fixed route. My trips are guided by intuition and by experiences along the way. Roads that attract me, people I meet and stories I hear. The doors I choose to knock on rarely hold a clue about what I may find inside.
Many of my interiors give evidence of a frugal life, of inhabitants who are able to make their personalities known with only a few means. In my work I concentrate on this authenticity and dignity.
Everything visible in the picture was there. I never change anything. I only use the available light. I use colour negative film and print both analog and digital. During this process no drastic changes are made either.
