Observational & Urban Nature

My photographic practice focuses on observation, creating spontaneous glimpses of the world and trying to see and understand the familiar and everyday in new ways though photography. Observational photography has a lot in common with street photography and documentary photography but I focus less on movements, actions and events and more on the traces of interactions between people and the environment that are left behind. I use primarily vintage cameras with a passion for consumer cameras and accessible photographic materials. With cameras from 1930-1990 and contemporary toy cameras, especially those that were created as inexpensive consumer cameras for everyday use, I use both 35mm and medium format film to then create digital images.
