I PHOTOGRAPH LANDSCAPE. MOSTLY. AND SENSES — OF PLACE, OF HOME, OF BELONGING.
I aim to avoid the pressures of dualistic thinking and to perceive landscape as a mode of being (rather than seeing), a polyesthetic experience, a co-creative space of human + nature interaction.
Evocative and pensive is how I would describe what I (try to) do, which probably explains my penchant for low-fi, hushed, (often) unsharp, murky, misty, grainy imagery. Imperfections, small(er) moments, and the everyday are what interests me the most. Ultimately, I seek the ‘humble sublime’, a term I picked up in an essay on the work of my favorite writer and painter Tove Jansson. She was a bold, yet quiet artist who created the world of Moomins — my happy place of adventure and my source of inspiration.
My work is strongly informed by my biography of relocation since a very early age, and by my academic background in Anthropology and Cultural Geography.
