I see myself as an outsider who invites to look again, who breathes unexpected new life into a familiar, dead reality. I want to carry the viewer away from the everyday world, into an inner space full of wonder.

In my work, I distort observable reality, play with scale and create optical illusions.

My photographs do not offer a window into the world, through which you look outside. It is rather the other way around: that other world comes to you and takes over your space uninvited. This way I explore the boundaries between two- and three-dimensionality. Whereas my spatial object acquires a certain flatness, the flat surface of the photograph takes on more and more form. For me it's all about the translating space into photograph and vice versa.
