Entry Description: This series shows the human obsession to create a perfect and esthetic world. A world that marks obvious borders of ownership and must show a pretty nice façade to the world outside. Moreover, the series does nót show the world what is behind the façade. For me that shows the human incapability to create that perfect world.

About the Artist:

Man makes its environment, and the environment makes the man. That thought was created during my study at the Photoacademy in Amsterdam and it has never slipped away from me. Recently I graduated and I am convinced that this theme will always inspire me as photographer. And that it results in photos that will broaden the perspective of my audience.
