I have always been interested in social systems of all kinds, how they determine the characteristics and conditions of human existence and thus my own existence in this world. My motivation as a photographer is in some way also determined by this interest. I am fascinated by spaces and environments to the extent that they are reflecting certain aspects of our human existence and our interactions within the prevailing social systems. These spaces and environments sometimes present contradictions and inconsistencies that I sense and feel but cannot always fully recognize and express. Photography grants me deeper insight into these complex realities and my own existence as a human being. It offers me a means of understanding and connecting with this world that exceeds my rational analysis. It allows me to express such insights in a way that I would not be able to do in words or otherwise.
