Through my photography I explore the characteristics of a given location through emotional observations. Light, time and silence are important elements as well as obvious activities not taking place. Small changes and occurances during the course of day, throughout the seasons as well as loneliness and abscence are important elements as I record these environments over longer periods of time.

In the projects Peaceful Question, Preparations Other Questions & Reflections I worked fully analogue with negative and positive film stocks.
