I like to construct sets.. I consider myself a set deisigner with a camera, but I'm absoutlely in love with photography as a medium. Its relationship with reality is what interests me the most. I like to expolit the fact that there is still a huge misconcepton that photographs are documents of truth. The combination of completely staging a scene from my imagination by executing it in a hyper-real, high-definition way, really excites me.

Work of art I would like to make

I have a few ideas for works I would like to pursue in the future. They are all based on the idea of showing the dark side of iconic or famous characters in Western culture. For example an image of Wally, (of "Where's Wally?") in his room surrounded by mannequins, cameras and framed copies of his successful books. I'd like it to be called "Where Wally is now" and it is to suggest a desperation in Wally to re-live his career that clearly peaked a long time ago. My work touches upon ideas of celebrity, reality and representation, and public perception. I like to build my sets from scratch to achieve an accurate image based on the vision I have in my head.
