SHIVER

Shiver is a body of work, made at night. The night is something that really fascinates me. All the darkness, the lack of sight, it makes me really uncomfortable. The fear I experience is what triggers me to make certain photographs. This is what fascinates me, how your emotions can affect your work. In this series, I focus on the emotion 'fear'.

FREQUENCY

In the summer of 2019, I followed my younger brother around with my camera. We were spending time at the swimming pool of a house we were watching over. I found out that my brother knew exactly what to do when I pointed my camera at him. He already knew what I wanted to capture before I could even think of it. He understood perfectly how to position himself in the frame before my eyes. I had never experienced such a connection between the two of us before. For a brief moment he put aside his tough, adolescent character and replaced it with everything I wanted to see. The outcome was a collection of photographs that seem to be one. A detailed description of something that cannot be described by words, cannot be seen and yet can be felt beyond boundaries. An intimate family portrait.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Looking at life, I see a pattern. A cycle of essential events, constantly repeating themselves. Like the pieces of a mosaic, being rearranged over and over again to create a bigger picture. A picture that inevitably falls apart as soon as you take a closer look at it. This dissolution is what we experience every day. The scheme of the world is too big for us to perceive. Larger than life, so to say. We are trapped in between elementary moments, unable to grasp their significance before they vanish. That is why the ability to capture such moments is what fascinates me. As a photographer, I collect these elements of reality wherever I can. I piece them together, waiting for the bigger picture to appear.
