Entry Description

Inspired by an ancient Greek sculpture, Venus de Milo, which is believed to be created at some time between 130 and 100 B.C. The marble sculpture is thought to be the work of Alexandros of Antioch. The arms and original plinth were lost following the discovery of the statue in 1820.

About Photographer

I work in the subliminal space between the cinematic and the photographic. My art, whether cinema or photography, explores extreme opposites and strives to merge them into a single, cohesive expression. The works are darkly romantic, often evoking a sense of insecurity and danger in the observer. It's the ambivalence, mystery and intensity inherent in the works that generates an unsettling energy that I find beautiful and challenging. I strive to create images that simultaneously represent loneliness, solitude, harmony, dissonance. I see myself as a visual storyteller. I find a rupture in the story and freeze the unfinished storyline, distorting visual concept to create works that are intense, dramatic and mysterious.
