The world is a tough place to live in. Man’s preferred means of communication is words. For me this does not cover it. I think that Man still has a lot to uncover, and for that you need different tools. One of them is photography, and I chose the camera. A photograph is based on real, material, even moving things that we may all see and recognize – a language accessible to all. Still, when you freeze it, it becomes sort of unreal, just as if you could stop a thought. It’s not progressive, like films, music and stories; when you look at a picture, you are in a way forced to immerse yourself in a frozen moment. I find that so interesting and that is what makes me get out of bed and go to do what I do.
