"To many my work represents a state of tranquillity, of Zen, of calm but also of drama. I'm often asked if this is who I am, or if my art is a way of escaping from something else. My answer is that this state is something I am celebrating! A state of harmony and balance – a state of equilibrium!

Using long exposures, sometimes hours, I'm capturing a slow-motion sequence of seemingly infinite movements and changes surrounding static objects and letting these elements blend into a single visual plane. It is the graphic representation of the determination and resilience of these static objects against the gentle yet powerful calm of their surroundings that to me signifies the equilibrium.

For me, photography is a visual medium that offers me the opportunity to express the way I see and feel things around me. I don’t take pictures! – I make photographs! Some people like them – some don’t! You see what you see!"
