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 organizations. 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 offers to me! This activity forces and allows me to slow down, to pick an object of interest, to engage and to 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 and perspectives become visible with the change of position or light, and with each return to the place. I look for details that are easily overlooked when rushing through the days. People have developed all kind of tools to express themselves – architecture, clothes, cars etc. My objective is to go behind the facades and show genuine humanity.
Travel allows me to document the interaction between man and nature. Outdoor places become like friends that I start to know better the more I return to them. Their age and the continuous change make me humble, and I deem it a privilege to witness and capture this beauty. It is our human responsibility to protect the environment and preserve it for future generations. With my images I want to contribute to our understanding of this duty.
