"As an illustrator and a graphic designer, I always have been drawn to graphic images. I am fascinated with very ordinary things, details, corners, shadows, stains, etc...
My latest photography work is a composite series which blends figurative pictures and pictures of textures or details. When merged, they surprise me into telling stories I didn’t even know existed.
There is a big element of chance in the process, as the pictures are taken separately, with no specific end goal in mind. This process is always unexpected, exciting and enigmatic.
