This body of work I call 'longing-scapes', referencing a quiet drama present in the photographs. They portray a light beyond darkness, a release into something beyond. Created without a lens, the images are not a 'focussed' view of the world, but a more basic response to light, hence becoming abstract color field images.
This 'lack of focus' removes us from the actual subject in front of us. Instead it hints at the mysterious, often unclear vision of our futures, made up of our internal desires and a longing for what we don't have.
