Artist Statement:
I explore the city's entrances, outskirts, and edges, margins. I wander day and night, becoming a permanent nomad finding refuge in these spaces.
My work examines the significance of nature photography in our modern age, shaped by human behavior and territoriality.
I work exclusively with analog and chemical procedures, using medium format cameras, various films, and development techniques. This approach allows me to pause, reflecting on the chosen objects and their significance.
