‘In my work I try to represent processes and non-tangible phenomena like the senses of smell or sight. I deconstruct the role that photographic materials and methods play in the assumptions that shape our memories of past events. My fascination is the shape of the fundamental forces behind remembrance. It is an approach to the medium of photography that is deeply rooted in my personal history’
