I began taking pictures for myself, as a way to trigger memories, which often enough would otherwise disappear as time goes by.
I approached photography through an analogue camera, the Olympus OM-1, because of its straightforward, mechanical intuition, reducing the act of capturing a moment to the basics of photography.
Once I developed the first roll, I fell in love completely with analogue photography and began taking my camera along all my travels. Spending all my free time in the outdoors my photography began to specialise into landscape photography. The results are often dreamlike landscapes, vague and fuzzy other-worldly depictions of moments in past time which belong to my memory.
