I open the door.
I enter and close it behind me.
The noise and chaos remain outside.
I close my eyes.
I know the path to follow.
I set off to the house of silence.
I leave the noisy street and walk towards the dark forest. The hustle and bustle is behind me.
My pace becomes calmer. My breathing deeper.
I let my body lead the way.
I see the door in front of me - the door to the house of silence.
It's completely quiet.
I feel safe.
I want to stay here and rest.
I always wondered what would happen if I discovered a completely new world – free of traces of human existence and filled with otherworldly landscapes. I would be the first to capture it in photography – like Ansel Adams.
For my projects I search for places where I can experience isolation and unspoiled environments; beauty and purity of what surrounds me. Manipulation is not a part of this world, everything is authentic. I and this world are one.
The attraction of darkness and a return to a time when everything was different. I love to confront the viewer with images of places hard to recognise, where human traces are hard to find. A place of my mystery. Intact.
