There are stories
which are untold!

I have always liked this statement because photography is a speculative interpretation of life. It questions perceptions of reality. In my work, I want to examine the relationship between photography and reality and stimulate the viewer to project her or his own interpretation, thus becoming an integral part of the creative process.

I reject the kind of photography which runs off an ever revolving template and creates glossy views of life and glamorised faces retouched beyond recognition. In my photographs of people, I aim to de-construct glamour by exposing people's natural beauty and the person within a body.

Another concept which informs my photography is emotions and associations: What I feel when I look at a subject, how I communicate this experience through my photographs, and how this affects and is interpreted by the viewer.
