_ABOUT MY WORK

The present of the past directly inscribed on light-sensitive paper and set in a frame. I capture what is fleeting and use cyanotypes to ask questions about the essence of nature and its transience. My photographic experiments capture the soul of nature in a direct and pure manner. Since 2015, I have been exploring elementary questions about the creation of an image and the possibility of capturing ephemeral phenomena using the photographic printing process of cyanotype.

_ARTIST QUOTE

“It‘s all about the river and the essence of the flow.”

"A gust of wind that sets the ears of corn in the field in motion - nothing and yet part of the sum of our existence."
