This series deals with a notion of loss and absence.
I photograph and through the act of capturing I isolate people and objects from time and space to show first of all inability photography to capture constant change and movement of reality. But alsothrough their isolated position to highlight fragility of their existence. And by suspending them in this non-place to capture the sense of non-belonging.
I photograph traces, ghosts of reality. Marks and scars which realty leaves behind. I assemble my fascinations with imperfection and fragmentation.I implement dream like storytelling and using those fragments compose non linear narrative.
I use photography as a record constant lose to capture reality. Paradoxically however I also photo- graph to reconnect. To deal with the absence after lose. To deal with the feeling of non belonging. Iuse the camera as a tool for building reality from fiction.
