“Without history there is no present, without present there is no future, no dreams, no memories not something to” go “for.”

“I love using photography as medium in complex hyperphoto collages. Because awesome details like rusty spots, wall discoloration, leafcolors and their spots, whimsical weed growth are everywhere in my architecture/landscape works. In my fresco’s you see human sweat, small details in accesoires, moles, folds in clothing/fabrics and hairgrowth are everywhere in the work.

I use these kind of photographic details to built worlds.”
