Collection of 15 images under the title ‘Closest Things’ featured in the Diversions gallery curated by Little Stories.
“The things closest to us interest me the most. A spiderweb on a balcony in the first light of day soon fading back to normal when the sun burns off the dew. My brother’s eye on his 31st birthday. A young author picking up a tiny frog in the palm of his hand. I find myself being magnetically drawn to the details and aesthetics of the things we think we know. To get as close as possible. I am interested in portraying my surroundings, and by lifting subjects away from their environment and placing them in another context I can highlight the exoticness in our vicinity that I am endlessly fascinated with and thereby challenge perceptions and expectations. Whether I am working on larger documentary projects, on commissioned assignments or just happen to stumble upon a farmer burning off bush on a field I am always looking for the extraordinary in the everyday and mundane.”
