As an artist, I am currently interested in exploring predefined theoretical as well as technical boundaries – the potential of the photographic media. It is important to me to feel challenged creatively and technically when I shoot. That motivates me.
In my Movement photos, I am using multiple exposure as a technique to achieve the final expression. By doing this, moving my camara around the selected motive, I intend to infer and illustrate a critical stance – to push the focus away from snapshot photography and other photographic genres that we have seen a lot in the industry and towards creating a more expansive visual vocabulary where the energy within the chosen object or the site, is emphasized. The layering of frames also provides me to accentuate a notion of the specific motive photographed. Be it the green landscape or the bright red London phone booth. The less know and the very well known. The photos connect technique and narrations about urban life, hidden structures and our understanding hereof to allude to a new and different story.
My hope is to provoke the imagination of the viewer so they can create their own personal stories about the themes based on their experience with the piece.
Each of the things, persons or places I have photographed, holds an expression and beauty that inspire me. Working as a contemporary artist begs me to place my work and practice in a social context. To question the given. The result is something easy recognizable yet unexpected and new. Challenging.
