With coming from a country with zero mountains my interest for the alpine landscape begun on vacations which I spend in my childhood. From that day it is still my biggest source of inspiration. It is the complexity what attracts me te most. The structure and the big difference in texture, from soft organic materials to bombproof granite. The difficult terrain to move through and the unfriendly nature for the existence of life. With photography I can further develop these landscapes into something that in my eyes has the right proportions, rhythm and are free from disruptive factors. The whole process from seeing an image' up to a final printed photo is very important, it is somewhat the search for structure within the mind, striving for a 'perfect' composition is essential.
The equipment which I work with matches this, lenses with a fixed focal length and only manual focus ensure that I can’t just point and shoot. Besides that I try to reflect hidden symbolism and ambiguity in image and text.
