Some words about my work:
The images I produce are deliberately enigmatic and multi-layered.
They invite the viewer to engage in the process of storytelling whereby dreaming and living are woven together as a tapestry.
I find the sources for my work in the urban environment: window displays, torn posters, graffiti, broken architecture. In short, the remains of man. These objects and situations are eventually transformed by rain, sun, reflections, and shadows, as well as additions made by the passerby.
Shaped by the forces of chance, these ephemeral visions are captured on film (and now also in bits and bites) and used as raw material that merge one into another forming a new identity.
The result? On one hand, a strange amalgam of my preoccupation with time and memory, and on the other, the way in which the deliberate manipulaton through photographic images can give us insight into our personal and collective struggles.
I usually work in three different formats: 25 cm x 30 cm and 32 cm x 45 cm printed on cibachrome paper; and a large format of 57 cm x 80 cm, digitilizing the final image and printing it on canvas. (Since this latter process is very costly, I have few samples of it on hand, but they can be produced on request.) Some of my pieces consist of several final images placed side by side as a series.
