Light and shadow exist as basic elements of photography no matter if you use digital, or film process. “Something” in between light and shadow, or life and death started emerging from the powerful visual language and appearing to me.
In the deep forest, I often loose sense of time, because the ratio of light and shadow changes depending on where you are. The sunlight seems like moonlight in some parts of the forest. This experience has become an existential question for me.
The “idea of forest”, connects to my own memories. The study of my own memory is the foundation of my image creation. Triggered by the sudden death of my father, the memory of my family flooded my mind.
To me photography is poetry. One single picture is a word. These images are the words in the conversation between myself, my father, and the other family members.
