Artist statement

I get my inspiration from literature and films, but also through my personal life and everyday situations. I think of my photographs as short stories in a book. I create and build a fictional situation by putting a character into it. The character represents a mood or a state of mind, and the surroundings are an important part of setting that certain feeling to my work.
