Art & Photography

“In photographs and films I am able to combine things that are present in thinking and dreams at the same time but in reality often very far from each other in time and space.”

The way his photographs are dreamlike is not unclear and sentimental.

Sometimes a series of photographs or video works like a poem, characterized by black humor and surprise.
