I like photos that tell a story and take you to another world. My work is poetic, mysterious and sometimes a little dark.

I graduated from the Photo Academy as an autonomous-illustrative photographer with digital work, but not long after that I lost my heart to a wooden dry plate camera from 1880. The paper-negatives and the uncorrected lenses add an extra dimension to the images: they are no longer just about space, but also about time. I like to give the analogue paper-negatives a digital twist, merging day and night, past and present, reality and phantasy.

Alongside my autonomous work I’m also a photographer for theatregroup Mugmetdegoudentand.
