I love the idea of photographing what cannot be photographed, creating thoughts, dreams and emotions and turning them into concrete forms which can then be shared. I use photography as a way of escaping from reality, creating a imaginary world through the lens.

As we grow older we lose a part of our imagination, we feel more in touch with reality and realise that the world is very harsh. We realise we are alone, we start to feel more vulnerable. Things from our childhood which once seemed wonderfull are now tainted by the adult world. We look back on our childhood and gain a sense of nostalgia for our prior state of freedom. We perceive memories but we never actually possess them.
