My intuition is a important factor in my photography by letting my intuition, mood and feelings carry me away, new frames spring to mind every day. I feel attracted by places and people where there is a worn out atmosphere.
The destruction that time brings with it and how we as people rush the process and move in it and strengthen is in my eyes a modern day problem. For me it is very important to take a step back and reflect and look at where I am and what I am seeing in front of me. Photography is a third eye for me. It lets me see things that I normally wouldn't notice.
Everything moves so fast now a days that you almost don't see what is happening around you.
In my opinion humans are the main reason everything rushes past us like a high speed train, we tell ourself that everyday we have to move faster before noticing the bigger picture.
Because of this we leave a clear print in our environment. The image you have of a certain area is blurred or even ruined very fast because of the constant rush we are in.
In the landscapes I photograph the human footprints we leave behind. With humans I search for the stories that they cary with them during their life and try to capture the most important experience what made them to what they are today.
These moments and footprints that the landscape and the humans experience, I try to bring those together in nostalgic, mainly black and white, contrast rich images were the vibe and emotion are a very important factor.
With this I try to let the viewer take a breath and reflect on wat he or she is experiencing at that moment and pull him, only if it is even for a second, out of his surrounding.
