About this series:
"I’m intrigued by the difficult relation between the desire for control and balance, and the desire for chaos and irrationality. I find these seemingly contradictory desires strikingly present in everyday life. The relationship between the not-knowing, not comprehending and our continuing desire seems very important to me. This can be expressed in photography: it ensures that you have to use your imagination.
Agitation in my head and unanswered questions do not fit in harmonious and controlled environments. Unanswered questions represent a need, and fuel my projects and correspond to desire. My photo series are full of chaos, not-knowing, impressions and questions, led by an apparent makability born in the mind, which however cannot be controlled."
