SOUVENIRS FROM THE SUN

2012-2017

Holidays; For most people a relaxing break from their busy work life. A moment to re-charge their batteries in the sun. I try to do this every holiday. But after laying on a sunbed for 10 minutes I get nervous. I feel a stronge urge to make things. It's an unstoppable force that only calms down after producing something.

While most people collect souvenirs in the shape of an object or postcard. My souvenirs are photographic series. Not pictures of family members and tourist sights, but experimental creations made with whatever I run into. I document objects after taking them out of context, or observe the surroundings or other people. These are my souvenirs from the sun.

Shot all over the world on many different places. Mostly together with my girlfriend.
