Although I work exclusively with a camera I have an ambivalent relationship with the photographic medium, probably because my language – my imagery – and my work processes don’t fit comfortably within the classic territory of photography. Thus a big part of my practice explores photography itself. Here I look at landscape as paradigm; from a visual angle by offering typical examples or patterns, and also semantically referring to the horizontal orientation of the images.
All the images come from my own archives, including my personal albums. The original images are reworked, printed with our faulty home printer (which distorts colours), manually crumpled, and re-photographed again.
In the end, these works are not pictures of reality, but mere (poetic?) representations of it. And yet any viewer will read them as landscapes.
