A beautiful photo has the power of drawing attention and arousing curiosity about its background story. That is where photography can have an impact and that is why in my photographic practice I’m concerned with framing the beauty of everyday life to make it visible for people who would otherwise not pay attention to it. I regard the camera as a catalyst for connection, be it between the subject and me at the moment of taking the photo, or between the subject and you at the moment you behold it.
