Photography is my friend and my memory; a way of viewing the world in a thousand different ways. Old buildings, signs and primary colors make my heart beat faster. Perfection and uniformity leave me cold.
The city is and has always been my main subject. I attempt to capture her less visible places and aspects. I long for timeless simplicity in a fast changing world.
My pictures reflect what I feel when I detach myself from the routine of daily life. That is the place where I can let my imagination run free, connect with a place, and start a dialogue with the streets.
I want the viewers to feel that there is an actual human being behind the lens. A human being that explores, perceives, knows her insecurities, but who wants to observe and enjoy the beauty of daily life above all. Every day again.
