About the series "Beautiful Borders" 

My work is mainly about borders, boundaries and limits and the impossibility to communicate about.

We set limits when we do not know people. We set boundaries when we find that people are too close to ourselves. We set boundaries when people look different. We set boundaries when people behave in a different way. We set boundaries when people express themselves in a different way.

We define ourselves and therefore others. We define the other and thereby ourselves.

This limitation produces bad communication with the other,  automatisms. Our vocabularies are uniform.

It is almost impossible to change this because what you say is incomprehensible because not recognizable. I call it: the unspeakable

In my work, the boundaries are presented metaphorically. They are also physical limitations such as curtains, doors, walls, windows and sometimes they have a strange beauty. It is the deceptive beauty that makes you focus on the boundary and while you do see the relative of such beauty.

About the series "Questions of Travel" 

Reading "Questions of Travel" by Elizabeth Bishop and the photographic interpretation of the poem.

How we travel, how we look at landscapes, how we think we look at them.  How we used to look at them, how we forgot how we looked at them.

Should we travel?  And can we comprehend the realities of a foreign land?
