My work focuses on photographic representations of identity. I am fascinated by the common and 'obvious' ways in which portraits are being used: walk into a store, read a magazine, surf on the internet; everywhere are portraits of people.
For me, a portrait is not something obvious. My fascination for photographic representation of identity originates from my own family history. Due to missing information on old family portraits of me and my identical twin brother, I do not know whether or not I am looking at a portrait of me, or at a portrait of my brother.
My work concentrates on my fascination of what you can see of somebody and what lies beyond someones appearance. Using a consistent conceptual approach I record how people are visually represented. Consequently I examine the possibilities and manifest ways of the visual representation of identity.
