The Shore 2019

These three images are part of the new series ‘Ennui’ – a dreamlike journey relating more to atmosphere and mood in an anonymous setting than to any specifics. Here I use photography almost like painting and certain cinematic expressions and its relation to the inner world than as a way of documenting an objective reality. I’m constructing these works using digital tools, often combining more than one photograph to make the finished image.
