ARTIST STATEMENT

I like to see and practice photography as a way to expand reality. Photography has a strong documentary approach, but it’s possibilities aren’t restricted to its science, but also to its magic.

The pinhole technique allows me to build my own camera from a tiny matchbox. I’ve been working with this technique since I started photographing. In this exhibition I’m presenting three examples of a series I made 2010­-2011 for an exhibition in São Paulo photographing architecture from Berlin, where I lived for 10 years.: Volkspark, Südstern, and Oberbaumbrücke.

As a parallel approach to architecture, together with still life’s, my second preferred subject, I’m also showing ‚Brasilia’, a digital collage of three iconic buildings from the capital, designed by Oscar Niemeyer.

His distinctive mark are his lines and sketches, and I chose photographing the pictures with movement, from inside a car at night.
