there is no meaning but the meaning we create. with a background in filmmaking and psychology, i’m fascinated by man’s frequent and distorted perception of reality in the visual and cognitive sense. the medium of photography contributes to these illusions with its magic-like manipulation of truth and trickery. the photo-based series, mirage, is a visual exploration of interpretation/misinterpretation using man-made structures as subject matter. In deconstructed, minimalist style dominated by line, shape, dimension and color. inspired by this theory, abstract expressionisms and sacred geometry, i create photographs that question its medium using 21st century technology. i practice analogue-like, in-camera technique using digital photography and computer software.
