The seemingly objective quality of the photographs is deliberately undermined in favour of a new order of images or image segments.

 “What remains a mystery is not so much what one keeps deliberately concealed, but the surprising extent of possibilities.”

John Berger

The images I find in old photographs. By cutting and editing I create new images that make up their own visual language. The photographs lose their former function as documents or reminders. The mementos, which are now ownerless and therefore useless, are repossessed, transformed and subjected to a new and apparently arbitrary subjective interpretation. By bringing together individual images to the series, new content can be arranged, which, combined with equally arbitrarily chosen literary quotations, develops into short “stories” with its own dynamic. The seemingly objective quality of the photographs is deliberately undermined in favour of a new order of images or image segments. They generate new worlds in a subjective and poetic way that – although based on facts – are completely invented.
