A landscape can be many things; a place, memories, a view from the window, a piece of land, nature, urbanity. In the camera, I create landscapes that I have never seen before. They are my own, unreal, dreamlike, fluid, ethereal and drenched in pink. Innocent and seductive, as the color pink itself, they move away from the material world. They are made out of light, reflections and fantasy. Photography is usually associated with displaying reality. However, a recognizable object does not necessarily have to be depicted. Through abstraction I intend to get close to the essence of things. In my work I search a connection between the form and the formless. I want not so much to “communicate” something, but to induce an attitude of contemplation, to create an atmosphere. The camera is my tool. I seize the light to create a new landscape, to portray beauty and to evoke a sense of the poetic.
