“I enjoy it when pictures feel as if one has left the people undisturbed. My work is concerned with a consciously created “casualness” that strips away the spectacular, the noisy, and superlatives. When I started working with photography, I mainly photographed models, since I was working as a model myself, and most of them were close friends, whom I knew and lived and worked with in close proximity. However my interest isn’t really in photographing them as models, within a fashion context; I chose to work with professional models because the notion of “posing” interests me. I like to question the expression of identity through the notion of posing – posing for a camera. The moment you’re being photographed, the moment you’re present “for” a photograph, or generally “presenting” yourself for something or someone interests me.”
