In making and reviewing these photographs, of what at first sight might seem bland buildings and vacant roads, I experienced that sometimes beauty and tragedy may co-exist.
Visual correspondences occur in a movement throughout the book as the photographs are sequenced in pairs from highlighted contrasts along muted greys towards the darkest blacks.
The pictures try to describe the thin line, as the poet Wallace Stevens has noted, between "the nothing that is not there and the nothing that is".
I focus on projects recording places and objects in the public urban landscape. The photographs deal with vernacular subject matter and take note of human nature, in likely and unlikely places, revealing an often overlooked sign language of the street. This "Slow Photography", that balances on the edge between an actual documentation and personal vision, is often edited in small editions of self published photobooks and zines.
