The Pinhole Universe

My work moves between theater, photography and visual arts. As a theater maker I like to look for the experiment and new connections with other arts.

I am fascinated by the magical simplicity of pinhole photography. Selfmade, lens-less cameras bring photography back to the essence.

Instead of a lens, its makes use of only a very small hole.

A hole is a void, a black spot of nothingness, and a portal to another universe

The pinhole camera is a simple, magical instrument that is capable of catching processes of  change and liminal states of conciousness.

My images bear the traces of time, chance and imagination.
