Statement:

When I stand in a landscape I love, I start to forget photographic vision. Before my eyes are beauty and the mystery of light and air. I depict a sentiment of the atmosphere and transpose the experience of what I see into a lyrical idiom.
With my handmade large format pinhole camera, I capture the tone of the impression, its mood, smell and sound, as these correspond to my feelings for this particular place.
