Statement

Exploring the concept of rhythm in everyday life, characterised by mundane and repetitive activities is the base of my photography practice. I am interested to look at the factors by which we recognize and remember a place. It can be a significant feature or a trivial one which surprisingly both become unique when their own rhythm is experienced and discovered. Questioning the relation between time, space and temporality, I attempt to document space as social and alive.
