In my work I focus on creating a connection with the subjects that I photograph. Most of the time I photograph men or people who inspire me. All of my images are created during conversations about life experiences.
I hope to create an environment where there’s no room for judgement but a space where everything can be said. For a moment the outside opinions don’t matter and it’s just me and the person I’m talking to.
I also write short stories about the men I meet and the moments we shared. In my stories the adventures and feelings for and with them are brought to life. When I’m alone I photograph landscapes, still-life, animals and self portraits that matches my mood.
In my exhibitions all those different elements come together to create one feeling.
