HOW I WORK 

In 2017 I decided to change the way I work and to focus more on the narrative of my work and be less strict with my choice of techniques. I am now working with photogaphy, stages photography, text and video.
In 2012  I had started experimenting with printing my pictures in parts on my home printer and to sew the different parts together to re-create the image. I like the way it allows me to work differently with a picture, to alter it in subtle ways, to physically interact with it. I wanted my pictures to become objects, to work on different levels and I wanted them to provoke people to look twice or even to want to touch the pictures. 
The staged photography that had been the main focus of my work was based on my urge to build the scenes I wanted to photograph from scratch. 
"Technically speaking: my pictures are all of small scale scenes I build.The settings are put together on a table in my studio and I use all kinds of materials to get the picture "right", from little figures used in railway sets to stones and plants I collect in nature, toy cars or parts of broken tools, many things find their way into my photography ... 
After setting the scene, I make a point of getting the light and the colors right during the shoot and not in postproduction. I do this with many different and somehwat unconventional light sources ...
The necessity of building what I want to see comes from the simple fact that I like to create a picture from scratch.
I want it to ressemble what I have in my head, to convey an idea, an atmosphere, a feeling, a vision that I have and that I am only able to express in this way and not in words or any other medium. As much as I like to frame the exisiting world so that it fits my purpose, the actual work of putting everything physically together to create a scene and to color it with light gives me control over every aspect of the process. 
I like most of my works to be printed on a large scale, the objects and figures used for my settings are very very small.."
