Moving foreward
Project info

• My autonomous work in photography highlights the development and change in space in the broadest sense of the word. This interest originates from my fascination for metropolitan architecture, landscape and the human being moving within. Space is in perpetual motion. Where tradition and development meet, often arises a discrepancy. Enforced by the progressing economic developments old and new sometimes hardly intertwine, they will deviate and ultimately new will prevail, mostly without dialogue or compromise.
• In my work I focus on project development, architecture and landscape that come into being through economic growth and political decisions that manifest themselves on a megalomaniac scale, because of which attention for living and working comfort – including the housing environment - is reduced to a minimum. The space and the landscape are filled in with almost anonymous mass architecture as a reflection of wealth and development, only to give man - susceptible to the enormous allure of wealth and economic growth - a place and to let him be part of this apparent progress.
• All my photographs are made with an analogue 8x10 inch camera. Thus I force myself to be contemplative, to observe and to study in what way the filled space presents itself and forces itself upon me. Photographed in monotonous reserved light and desolate green, without drawing too much attention or overemphasizing, subject and colour amalgamate to a documentary image.
• Emotions that lie in desolation, megalomania, imperfection, the boundaries of living comfort or the joy of the scarred landscape with everyday life as the only perceptible motion
