About / CV

A camera enables me to spot the extraordinary in the ordinary. Some of my recent works are based on still life photography with a personal theme, molding aluminum foil as a skin on people, its metallic surface reflecting light, creating abstract images. All colors are created in a simple analog manner by placing colored paper in front of the foil. Ordinary foil deconstructing people into chaotic shapes.
