Please describe the core theme and central message of your work.

To create a field of tension between the tangible and the intangible. Nature and architecture are the central motifs.

Introduce to us the work that you feel exemplifies or best embodies the message of your work.

My work has a multi-step process, sometimes years apart in time. When I’m out and about with my camera, I intuitively photograph what touches me. Sometimes these shots – after an initial review, store in my archive for years, only to be selected for a suitable project.

A calibratable monitor and a color management adapted to the printout is necessary to make the nuances and moods visible on the result. Paper, printing and the way of presentation are an important part of my art.
