In many ways, stories and memories are a uniquely human experience; we have used them for generations to illustrate our lives, record ourselves for the future, and to make sense of the past. The conceptual research of Desolation focuses on the disquieting, intimate feelings evoked by the neglected architectures and their silent presence of absence. Yet these are not lifeless photographs. Although the perspective can appear objectifying and faceless there is an even deeper feeling below generated from the living memories of the past inhabitants. Because every place can tell his story and photography is an active language which we can use to interpret it.
