About the Book
Sometimes you have to change to stay the same.
So I changed gear and returned to black and white.
I set out to explore the same variety of photographic genres as before,
recording buildings, roads and things.
But the investigation of highlights, shades of grey and darkness opened me up to unexpected gifts and a renewed passion for photography.
Sometimes limitations offer possibilities;
I found myself looking at different things in a different way;
and maybe for different reasons.
I focus on projects recording places and objects in the public urban landscape. The photographs deal with vernacular subject matter and take note of human nature, in likely and unlikely places, revealing an often overlooked sign language of the street. This "Slow Photography", that balances on the edge between an actual documentation and personal vision, is often edited in small editions of self published photobooks and zines.
