Themes central to my work are anguish, beauty and abjectness. I am interested in the emotional truth in people’s lives. I make photographs because words seem to fall away. My images are related to the way you think of a person you never have really known, who you only imagine. Then, the second you face them and see how they really are, the weight of their reality crushes your imagined version. But where did that version come from in the first place?
