Research

My works transform the immediate reality using digital photography enabling it to become a surreal realm filled with symbols, myths and meanings than give ”plain” photography a welcomed new way to become a different visual language. I am also interested in areas that at first glance lack relevant esthetic content and the possibility to imbue them with an aura of visual refinement.
