“I made pictures in a visual diary style with a point and shoot flash camera, I worked with medium format for landscapes and cityscapes, and used large format for some portraits and interiors. I was looking for specific light, mood, colour combinations that evoked nostalgic condition. I searched for the archetypal imagery of longing: objects obscured by other objects, blurred outlines, darkness, intense eyes in portraits, the very special colours during dusk, interiors concealed by shadows, movement and blur. At the end Amber Room talks of the time in the past that is now perceived as wrong, as something we should have moved on from. And it is this inner conflict, the tension we carry that interest me.”
