About the Photographer:
"My work often focuses on marginalization and alienation. I document people and places that exist on the edges of society, sometimes physically, mentally or both: excluded by choice or by circumstances.
Concurrently, I am interested in control and conformity and I try to present both of these aspects within a photograph. In a time of consistent turmoil, I feel a need to document my generation and question our deeply rooted ideas of democracy, security and progress.
Visually reminiscent of cinematic stills and graphic novels, I attempt to create a sort of hyper-reality that contains a sense of mystery and sadness, yet contains hope and beauty. "
