About My Photography

My photographs tend to be more like mirrors than like windows (to use John Szarkowski's words).

I do like to make photographs that show the world more or less as it appears to our eyes. However, I am more often interested to make images that evoke in the viewer associations, certain moods and personal imagination, even when it might not be apparent what these are photographs of.

For example, the above photograph and the one below from the Light series remind me of a feeling of expansiveness and the state of mind where you see everything afresh again. For you and for each other person the associations with these images could be something else, naturally.
