Living On The Edge
A personal still life series during lockdown.In these images I am looking for a certain tension and a suggestive narrative. It is not just about the object itself but why is it placed there and how. The objects are actually very much alive but frozen in time. Stopped in the story that yet has to be told and unfold. Like a blank sheet of paper waiting to be taken and waiting to be born. The blank piece of paper is a symbol of all that is to be written. It is reflective of everything that can be, the hope and promise intrinsic to endeavor.
'Photography and film give me an opportunity to fulfill my curiosity for the mysteries of everyday encounters. I am always interested in people’s vitality and fate, how we shape the world around us, and vice versa'
