Several years ago I began to document my life through photographs in an attempt to let go of the past. It has also helped me gain a better understanding of myself and my surroundings. In many ways I am shooting my autobiography but I often choose other people to tell my story. This creates the distance needed in order to be able to see my life from an alternative viewpoint.

There is a prominent focus on the personal, intimacy, as well as the desire to uncover the beauty in everyday life. Through the ordinary there is a possibility of previously unexplored places of dreams and curiosities.
