My work is about permanence, change and loss. It is about our futile attempt to stop time, to be still and to hold on to things that can’t be kept. The images are often of subtle, even generic places that we might have flown over once on our way to somewhere else entirely. Perhaps we look out and imagine what lives have been lived there, or perhaps we simply notice the pattern created by tracks in the snow, but either way the images are familiar and vague at the same time, like fading memories that both comfort us and leave us lonely.

I try to convey that sense of “then and now” with my work. In contrast to the still, solid architecture we build and surround ourselves with, in contrast to the marks we make on the earth, and in contrast to the frozen photographs which we treasure although they are simply illusions, our lives are, for better or for worse, in constant and unstoppable forward motion.
