Om deg,
om dem
om oss.

I’m exploring the psychological effects of limits imposed on our lives. By considering subjects such as gender, childhood and mental health, I will look more closely at the invisible restrictions to human experiences.

Every day I wake up. Some days I feel like a giant, other days my feet can barely touch the ground.

Most of my work portrays the quiet aspects of life, because most days that is how I am. In other words I never photograph a person laughing if I don’t feel like laughing myself. The camera is an extension of me, and the photographs are evidence of people or events for my mind to process as an equation. Basically it’s all mathematics but one could also call it an individual collecting poetry.
