• In my documentary projects, I explore the way people relate to their environment. People define their surroundings in all sorts of ways. Convers, people derive identity, freedom and a sense of security from where and with whom they are. People are attracted to places and people that they can relate to. What is cause – what is effect? Do people adjust to fit in - or do they change their environment in such a way that it fits them? Man in his setting, the subtle and mutual way of influencing – whether consciously or not, is the subject of my photography.
