Back from business travels, remodel finished, I have finally been able to focus on my own work (you have no idea how good it feels). I have therefore lot's to share!
Finally got around pulling together my two key projects from last year (and an old one as well). Have a look and tell me what you think:
- Peregrinations II: Place
Our sense of identity is shaped by our environment. But what happens when we change our perspective? Do we start to notice global patterns? Does it help us see the universal beauty of our world? Or find our place, as individuals, or communities? I am personally always fascinated by the similarities in aerial views of nature and cities. Both of them make me feel a little insignificant. And at the same time ironically the distance helps me find myself.
- Collaborations: Finestra Anima
How do we define identity? Personality? Attraction? We classify people we meet on a small set of fairly universal parameters: age, gender, occupation, religion, etc. Yet true connections come from a deeper almost subliminal level, often obscured by value judgements based on the above mentioned parameters. This installation inverted the process of discovery of 'strangers' by removing all external references and indicators and only showing larger than life close-up images of eyes of a wide diversity of people. Each group of eyes is multi-faceted and backlit, confronting participants with multiple giant staring eyes in every direction, day and night.
Art installation at 2013 Burning Man: 4 pieces, 16 pairs of eyes, retro-lit, solar powered, with individual notepads for participants comments and reactions.
- Pilgrimages I: Spiritual Journey (2007)
There is an image in my mind of a magical distant world, mysterious and beautiful. A place far away from what I am used to, both in space and time. I had never seen it, just a mental creation after innumerable books and movies and stories. Until last morning, when I woke up to realize that it was here, all around me, real.
- The Fence
I feel very honored that some of my new work was selected for The Fence exhibition in New York and Atlanta. The Fence is a 1,000 feet outdoor photographic installation that originated in Brooklyn and is now spreading throughout the US. If you happen to be in either city this summer, I highly recommend visiting this show.

For the 2nd year in a row, my work was selected and is featured on American Photography 30.
