Shadows
Project info

What is a memory if not a shadow of the object remembered? This series was initially inspired by Edward Steichen’s photo of Fred Astair from 1927 but it evolved into a shadow of that memory and took a rather different form, i.e. still lifes of food.

My work is based on the research of mundane objects like food and the underlying stories they tell about continuity and memory. I am particularly interested in the perception of temporality and the mechanisms of memory and my work tends to deal with these two themes, both separately and intertwined.
