statement

Photographs and moving images are visual captures of the elements that culminated in a specific moment. These documents of time trap a piece of reality inside, yet I do not regard them as the absolute truth.

Knowing that taking photos of the present is just an illusion, I recognize the process as preserving a piece of time for the future. I use the camera as a tool to create a cosmos of images, to help understanding and interpreting life in retrospective.
