Views vom the inside to the outside.
I am attracted to the self-reflexivity of photography. I am very aware of my own double self. The balance of forces between the reflexive sensation of the imagination and the ecstatic feeling of perception outside of oneself the description of the degree of intensity of the real and its variations.
Life inevitably translates into time; – into life-time. It is time, which in its continuity, creates a dual gaze. Photography always looks in both directions at the same time, into the past and into the future, at the object but also at the person being looked at, photography is in this sense a dual mirror because it also always tells something about the person standing behind the camera.
I understand “The double Self” as a large mural that takes up several facets of society. In ‘The double Self’ I develop a kaleidoscope of images that tells a multi-layered and dazzling story of people facing their uncertain future. I place the individual at the centre of the project and reject any objectification. It is a ‘cart blanch’ for a gaze of affection.
Intimate portraits are a gentle reminder of home and humanity.
