"I like photos that tell a story and take you to another world. My work is poetic and a little mysterious."

On the Beach - Analog photograph and East Indian ink 21 x 29,7 cm (other formats possible)

"In my work, I want to express the connection, or interrelatedness, between the earth, animals, humans, plants, moon and stars. I combine my own drawings in East Indian Ink with analog techniques in which “nature draws itself” (in the words of photography-pioneer Fox Talbot) such as photograms and lunagrams. A lunagram is a picture of the night sky exposed with the light of the moon. In this way, I want to render visible that we are not separated from nature but a part of it."
