Photographs

I use photography as a medium with which to visualize and materialize my ideas and use text subtitles to communicate with the objects and people in the photos. In other cases, the objects or people directly talk to the observer through them. My images resemble imaginary film or video-performance stills.

The words and sentences are taken from song lyrics, poetry and movies and I make up some myself. Every text filters a range of thoughts and experiences with which young people are familiar.
My photos are ‘living examples’ of the lives of people who have been displaced from reality, individual lives that are isolated. These people, and the objects that represent them, appear emotionally numbed by the vastness of the problems that surround them. Unable to solve them, they just note them in a matter-of-fact way. Doing this renders them insubstantial, reduces them to a ‘just another bad day’ that will disappear with the next morning, even if nothing is done to solve them.
