I'm a photographer working with experimental photography, using camera-less teqniques. My practice in the last few years involves the cyanotype process, which creates as a final result monochromatic blue/white images. The images attain an abstact form, responding rather to inner schemes, than images of the actual world.

Inmywork, I explore states of the consious and unconcious mind that remainhidden and unrevealed, till I bring them to the surface through the artistic procedure. Formeit's an attempt tocomprehend oneself as being a part of a larger energy system called world. In doing so,the createdimagescan be considered to be mental images, often maintain a contemplative character and hopefully transfer an energy on their own.
