Photography and video

The images I make balance on the lines that separate violence from vulnerability, aggression from affection and intrusion from care.
I construct set-ups in which these subjects are made to interact in new ways, examining the transformational aspects of photography. The starting points for these set-ups stem from a language based place, (so) the titles form riddles with the images. I look into the points at which these notions start turning into one another and the threshold after which an emotion or thought turns into its opposite. The mechanisms and technicalities of photography serve as tools for isolating and amplifying these processes in order to go more into detail, which is why I use different types and formats of digital and analog cameras (and various methods of image production and distribution).
