“In my work I present enigmatic views of everyday objects, mysterious structures and shapes that only reveal their true nature after a second or even third examination, and turn the spotlight on objects that would otherwise have gone ignored. This way I extend the boundaries of photography beyond their accustomed limits, awakening associations and drawing our imaginations further into the unknown. I use light to paint images, capturing mysterious simulacra of my perceptions – a section, an unusual perspective, a play of light and shadow or a reflection - always eschewing macro photography or image editing.”
