Photography for me is a way to tell a story and evoke a feeling. I utilize my camera as a tool to create imagery that is in both real and surreal, laced in fantasy. In my attempt to tell a story I combine my memories and observances of my everyday surroundings. The story continues to grow as I rely on my conscious and subconscious to invent and transfer those thoughts to an image. My goal is to relive a memory by arranging a scene that I ultimately have direct control over the outcome. It's from that process I find myself being most present in me.
The series "Imaginary play" is about make belive, playing and exploring our world, seen through the fresh eyes of childhood. All the magic and bewilderment that comes with growing up.
