If you say that photography is a way of framing the world so that it corresponds to what we wish to see, then I am going a step further by building this world I wish to frame, first. 
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 arevery very small..

Two years ago I began 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 want my pictures to become objects, to work on different levels and I want them to provoke people to look twice or event o want to touch the pictures. 

Apart from my "imaginary photography" work, I also occasionally work with video and text, and I actually like taking "normal" pictures outside of the places I walk through ...
