Title: Blackout

About the Photo:

Blackout is part of a study The Memory of Time about the plasticity of time and light, to see time and light as something elastic, that can be molded into something palpable. For me there is a strong correlation between the impermanence of light and the fluidity of time. I explore and create abstract spaces that cannot be deciphered immediately.
My fascination with light and luminance finds its expression in all my photographs. To me light is both a tangible and evanescent medium, if not a language. By fading, molding and carving the light in my photographs, I try to transform reality and move into an imaginative and intuitive realm. My process involves composing layered images that nearly look like drawings or paintings, scraping off the innate realism that is part of photography.
