Recent work consists of analogue photography, often in the form of intimate, small-scale gelatin silver prints or C-prints that are sometimes grouped into series. Diary-like excerpts go hand in hand with an investigation into form and experiment. Chiefly, these are images that are not staged —captured in the immediate intimate environment. They reflect on everyday personal scenes and relationships, as well as on the process of image-making and the medium of photography itself.

The shift to expose and seriously elaborate my (previously private) photographic work happened during the course of 2020-2022, when I decided to alter the focus in my artistic work, taking a step back from my conceptual installation-based practice.
