2099 shows images of remembrance linked to my perception on the constant evolution of history and its repetitive character. Deconstructed places and manipulated icons are working on an associative basis to create a new overview of the present. The place describing character of an image is less important compared to the demystification and psychogeography of the location or subject that is photographed. Recurring motifs in the work are elements of history, nature and the legacy left behind by people. I’m experimenting with what is staged and what is not and how a photographer can interfere in the landscape by working on an underlying lyricism in the images. It is important for me to include a transitional and apocalyptical character in the work to put the focus on the concept of evolution and anachromism. Some photographs are taken by chance and close to home, others were chosen to photograph on fixed historical locations. Amongst these places are London, Dachau, Athens, et al.
With time passing by, places get interchangeable, they rise and fall, dissapear and come back.
