NOMINATED: German Photo Book Award 2012
"They are pictures of places and people I have known for a long time, whether related by blood or by affinity. And places and people that those I know know, and people I don't know, in places that have been known to me for a long time.
One becomes what one is in one's environment. Relatives are part of the genetic environment and unrelated people who become relatives are the closest environment. The people and spaces and landscapes of one's personal environment are also the most photographed motifs in the world. If one is in an environment for a long time, then it is called "home" or "relationship" or "family" or "home" or "cemetery" or "prison" etc. Perhaps the personal environment is four-dimensional - the three-dimensional space and the fourth dimension, the emotion attached to this (life/people) space."
