"In my work, I focus on two overarching themes: Self- and collective perception and memory practices in archival research. Materiality, its three-dimensional presence as well as tactile sensation are essential for my photographic practice. My first self oriented focus developed through the years on a reflection on the perception of archival material and layers of memory, eventually permitting a phenomenological inquiry of the photographic act."
