Photography is my preferred visual art. The idea of capturing unseen perspectives of everyday things excites me, and I am amazed by how there is no end to finding new ones.
My regular day-job is focused on strategizing, problem-solving and decision-making for my organisation. The agenda is filled with a variety of topics switching in high frequency; changing communication partners demand continued adaptation. There is little room for deep thinking.
What a contrast photography presents to me! This activity forces me to slow down, to pick an object of interest, to engage with and experience it for as much time as I need and want. I become an observer, discovering the personality of the subject in focus. New layers become visible with the change of position, light and each return to the place.
Landscape photography is a natural fit for me. Outdoor places and their details become like friends that I start to know better and better the more I return to them. Their age and continuous change make me humble, and I deem it a privilege to witness and capture this beauty.
I am especially attracted to seasides and waterfronts due to the simplicity of lines and compositions they offer. At the same time there is structure in water, sky and clouds that make the scene a unique one.
Cities offer similar scenes, and I am looking out for the ones that present rest in the middle of busy life or that show a connection of past and present.
One of my key memories is the sound of large blocks of ice breaking off the edge of a glacier and crashing into the Alaskan sea. I am on my journey to capture moments like this one and hope to get closer with every photograph I make.
