I have a no-end fascination for exploring beyond my own reality in my work. I bought my first Leica (M9) one year ago where the legendary Noctilux F1 has proved to be an amazing tool for this exploration. While the Leica optics are renowned for their sharpness I have found that I prefer to move in and out of situations with a wide-open f1.0. Challenging me to trust intuition before technique. Giving answers to questions I never even had. And moments of grace that was nearly missed. I am happy to present some of my findings from two different projects.
1. Where do I end? And You begin?
This is an ongoing project exploring the in-between fields in love relations. The selection is from Part 1 working with my children.
2. She´s a Warrior.
I am amazed by observing explosions of energy in something being presumably still. In this project observing the vibrantly alive woman battling to be, yet enjoying the quiet strength in the fight.
