I look at the art of photography as a way of documenting life. When I take pictures, it is about the idea of remembering and documenting the things that surround us that have aged or been passed by – like the cracks on the walls of an aging building or an abandoned factory that is left and forgotten on the side of a busy road. Many people will walk right by these sites and not look twice. For me it is a challenge to see a past life in the details that remain.
My work focuses on the forgotten details of aged and abandoned buildings. It tries to make visible the life the buildings once housed and to raise the question of what led to their ruined state.
