Why do you do what you do? I have to.
Could you describe your style and how it developed? My work is strongly documentary and objective and yet evinces a distinctive artistic originality. The themes and motifs of my projects always revolve around questions of space and atmosphere and their significance for and effects on the individual within that space. Psychological and social aspects play a role in the creative process, as do subtle atmospheric elements, the effects of lighting, the dimensions of a space and the impressions it evokes.
Where do you get inspiration from? From watching the world and society and questioning it.
What is your idea of success? Get your ideas and thoughts materialised.
Do you believe it is important to raise artistic awareness in your country? Raising awarness is important and necessary in every country and in any case.
