Looking at the mystery of nature.............

Have you ever felt the magic experience of being in nature and suddenly feeling totally different. All daily struggles are vanishing into the earth and time doesn’t seem to exist.

It’s been proven that presence of nature improves our well-being. It acts as a refugee for the mind and it literally slows you down.
But coming home into your daily routine the whole feeling quickly disappears.

Through my work I am trying to bring the outside world into our homes and offices to keep that sense of wonder and to keep that connection with nature.
The images are meant to slow you down and make you think. Using pinhole photography is great for this purpose. It’s a very authentic way to record images. A pinhole camera is nothing more then a lightproof box with only a tiny little hole in it, instead of a lens. Inside the box at the opposite side of the pinhole an image appears. The image can be preserved by putting material which is sensitive to light at the side where the image shows up.
It is literally a slow form of photography because of the long exposure times and the amount of time the whole process takes.
