I am fascinated by the mysterious space between the past and the present. This is where nostalgia does its dubious tricks, and reality gets a pastel-coloured sugar coating or sometimes goes through violent mutations.

I explore these transformations in my constructed landscapes. I collect remnants of actual places and combine them with echoes from stories, myths and my own romanticized ideas of them. I see my images as monuments to the act of reminiscence.

Carefully crafting analogue illusions is an essential part of my working process. I work through the fragile moments within myself by facing each element as tangible material.

Through my work, I want to reveal photography’s frailty – the way it can fall victim to nostalgia’s strange ways, just like memories.
