I have an interest in themes such as memory, mortality, spirituality, the human condition, the exploration of the human psyche and the evolution of consciousness. I embrace the indexical qualities of photography and its immediate impact on the viewer, but what I am mainly concerned with are the ways “reality” can be transformed. By manipulating the photographic medium and combining it with other media such as collage I am able to develop a personal and simultaneously transpersonal language which negotiates between subjective art and the photographic document. I see my work as a kind of weapon against the ephemeral or, as Vilém Flusser would say, a “hunt for new states of things” (Towards a Philosophy of Photography, 2000) .
