"In my photography, I'm in search of aesthetics, harmony and tension, shapes and colors to create pictures which evoke emotions that are familiar to me and the viewer. Celebrating singular objects, I tend to isolate a subject matter. Inspired at an early age by analogue photography, I started to photograph / shoot women and children. During my education in engineering / when i was studying to be an engineer, I worked as a model internationally to fund my studies. Among other things, this experience has influenced my style.
