My interest is not to record what is there but to invent it. For this reason a plastic camera is not an alternative but a choice. The images take me on a journey, a quest to discover what the camera sees through the lens. I am fixed to the ground, pinned down by the image but i do not control it. The Holga and I do not see the same things; it leaves me free and i manipulate nothing as there is nothing mechanical about this camera - so what she sees i do not and what remains for me to see is always a surprise; a complete submission. The real is unreachable.

I paint with images, no longer with brush on canvas.
