Every human being is unique.

Every human being is beautiful.

All aspects of my photography can be traced back to these two principles. At the centre of all my work is the human being with his feelings, his expectations, hopes or disappointments. It is often small gestures, a glance or a movement of the hand that convey a message or a feeling and captivate the viewer of a picture. There is a strong pictorial power in these quiet messages, which I seek and to which my photographic process also subordinates itself. I photograph on analogue film. 10 pictures per roll, without the possibility of an immediate control of the result. Curiosity, an emphatic openness towards the person in front of the camera, absolute trust in one's own feelings and the abandonment of rigid ideas are essential for my pictures. The technical aspect of my photography supports this approach. Through alternative photography techniques, I create leaks or "dirty" light and deliberately provoke ambiguity in image areas of expected detail. These effects are enhanced by high-contrast analogue printing techniques. For it is often the details that can only be guessed at or are hidden that captivate us.
