I aim to capture the essence of a scene, be it a location or an activity. By focusing on the inherent energy, I strive towards conveying the subject in a way that makes it experienceable for the viewer.
Though remaining recognizable, the subjects are not represented exactly as they appear to the human eye. By submitting them to abstraction using a manual process, I intend to encapsulate an intrinsic quality.
In effect, the images are received in a more instinctual way.
