Though the camera is a big part of the many tools I use, I don’t directly wanna call myself a photographer. The
photographic part is more a means then a goal of its own. Like a painter has the freedom, by use of color and form, to
create his image to his own imagination of reality, I take the freedom to form, that what the camera perceives, to my
imagination by use of postprocessing.
I don’t register, I create. Each setting is build as if I were a sculptor. Often one and the other is collected, painted and
built first, before a setting is created. I make a lot use of colors that can work contrasting to each other or bring
tranquility in the image.
Growing up in an unsafe environment, there was a big need for recognition and acceptation. A very vulnerable boy that
tries to keep afloat and doesn’t dare to show his vulnerability. I put the vulnerability back in my work. I don't shun the
pain behind behind my initial topics as ‘desire’, ‘stillness’, ‘void’, ‘beacons’. Inter-human relationships are playing a big
part. By the static of the image and the mutual distance, I want the viewer to wonder how these relationships to each
other are.
