2099 shows images of remembrance linked to my perception on the constant evolution of history and its repetitive character. Deconstructed places and manipulated icons are working on an associative basis to create a new overview of the present. I am experimenting with what is staged and what is not and how a photographer can interfere in the landscape by working on an underlying lyricism in the images. The work can both be seen as a prophecy for the future as well as a desire to the past. Some photographs are taken by chance and close to home, other were chosen to photograph on fixed historical locations and metropoles.
