Artist statement

I see myself as a modern romanticist. I like to work with the ideas of the borders of the human existence; I dream and long about things man can not do. It stirs up a certain playfulness to me. This fascination is fed by myths and sagas, stories in which fantasy knows no boundaries.

I use my camera to search for these authentically unrealistic dreams. Those who try to fulfill these dreams are my biggest inspiration. The reach for the unreachable, as the unrealized possibility gives wings. By making the desire tactile and visual I try to get a grip on the elusive.
