“My photographs evoke a subjective existence outside the image. As the classics have said and which I also believe is that the work comes into existence through irrational and subjective processes by using and altering the objectivity of the technique. Perception by way of touching also gets visualized on my intimately close pictures, the assembly of spiritual-intellectual-physical perceptions is manifested, the photographic device is bestowed with other elements beside it optical capabilities, I subjectivize it - not in the relation to the model or to itself, but as a real medium between the two.”
