Project description

i have a problem called nostalgia and i don't like it. whenever it comes, i just feel like something is screwing me over. that's why i have to act.

The way to cure my nostalgia is anachronism. For me, this means snatching events and moments from their seemingly safe embedding in time and re-contextualising them. For me, this happens when I create new pairs through formal aesthetic features, and thus new narrative gestures develop that uproot the original photo with what it brings in terms of personal-emotional.

So I'm more concerned with presentation than photography in this project and I'm looking a lot and certainly in need of help.

Photography is always there and is for me not only a documentary but rather a searching-perceiving, a groping, act. i work less on themes, rather i have developed rules that shape my view, my empathy and pictorial listening; i only photograph with 50mm focal length and analogue (- so i do everything that happens in personal work analogue with a Leica M6). (In addition, I work irregularly in the field of reproduction photography and reportage from commissions with a 5d mk IV.... just sayin).

yeah, let's talk about it, shall we?!
