I am an experimental photographer with a penchant for imperfections.
I am fascinated by the unreliability of the human memory as an instrument for recording reality. Our recollection is at best a potpourri of isolated but genuine events. Sometimes, it is not even that. Often our memories assail us with a medley of impressions we have assembled ourselves throughout the years. Our mind orders, rearranges, colours, discolours, dims and accentuates our past... all by itself, independently of our conscious will. I tend to create images that could convey the subsequent memory of an event.
Hence, I actively search for the flaw, the colouration, the interpretation and deformation of reality; that which will compose our subsequent memory.
My tools and methods (old Polaroid cameras - usage of expired film - deliberate film obstructions) resemble our memory in that they are NOT precise and are not even geared towards a perfect representation. They often yield results that I could never have predicted with any certainty, because their imperfections do not allow for calculation.
