HENCE, I COVER (ME) AGAIN AND AGAIN

Première at Unseen Photo fair 2015 

This work is the beginning of an ongoing investigation into how we human beings, urban citizens relate to nature. My main focus is on how an environment - which consists of buildings, cars, traffic jams, offices, computers, smartphones, social media, etc. - is affecting our perception of nature. With photography as an observing medium, I explore a new reality of the urban nature as we experience it in our daily life.

The behavior of people, linked to a particular environment or situation, is a common theme of my work. Our environment creates who we are and will be and how we position ourselves within. In the course of this investigation thus arose the counter-question: how do we position ourselves as urban citizens in ‘wild’ nature? Can we still experience, smell or feel it? Or do we mainly protect ourselves against nature? 

Are we not all veiled in Western cities in a certain sense?
