About my work
Our way of communication has completely changed over the past years, and with it, the way we look at the world. In my work I show the disconnection with our surroundings. We live in a time of luxury, welfare and prosperity. In the western world, you grow up being told you can do anything you want and that you’re responsible for your own success. There is no limitation, no frame.
However, the constant stream of information shows us there is always someone better, faster, more successful than you. All possibilities are here, so it is your own fault if you fail. The pressure of performing makes us long for another time, another fictional world. With my work, I want to raise awareness of the world outside of the photographic and “social” frame. I show the unadulterated truth, but the truth is bendable. Just by shifting focus, you can change the whole interpretation and create a timeless parallel.
“The thing that is important is the thing that is not seen.”
