My photographic research typically focuses on topics that are inherently connected to what makes us human, but that are also inherently invisible, such as truth, faith and science. Paradoxically, I use the visual medium of photography to connect these opposites.

Being raised in a Christian family, the notion of the supernatural was never far away, and it still never is. On one hand my life rests on the search for an invisible God, while on the other hand in that I have chosen a medium that ties me to only that what is visible. By extension, conceptually my work revolves around the paradox of photographing that which we cannot see.

Whether we rely on science, faith or on both as our basis of truth, we humans have the tendency to selectively choose facts and opinions that reaffirm our worldview. I believe that art, also inherent to what makes us human, has the ability to both challenge our worldview, and to also bring the human connection we so desperately need.
