THE WORLD IN BLACK AND WHITE
B.S. : What has had a major influence on your artistic practice?
A.: I have always loved photography, it used to be one of my favorite hobbies. But that’s all it was at the time, just a hobby. I never really considered making more of it, until a couple of years ago, when I graduated from university and I had the opportunity to take some time off from work and studying. I had all the time in the world and all I wanted to do, and all I did, was travel, live life to the fullest and photograph anything and everything that spiked my interest. I had my camera everywhere with me. I could spend nights on end just sorting, editing and working on the photos that I had taken. I constantly had new ideas for new photos, new series, new projects that I wanted to work on. I then realized that this was the one thing that really made me happy, that really made my days’ worth, the one thing that always filled me with joy and passion and the one thing I could never get tired of. So, I decided to put in everything I have into making this hobby my life, my work and not just a pass time. The opportunity to show people the way I see the world through my eyes is just so amazing and fulfilling.
B.S. : How did you curate the pieces for ‘The world in black and white’? What was the selection process?
A.: Initially, I started by selecting a series of photographs all made in the woods. The idea was to have multiple photographs from the same series for the exhibition. However, during the selection process I realized that these photographs were too similar and that I wanted to show different scenes, different emotions and different perspectives of the everyday world. I’m not a big fan of monotony and order. I love chaos. So, I ended up choosing some of my favorite works in black and white, which were taken at different times and different places and which all express different emotions and aspects of life.
B.S. : What impressions do you hope to inspire in visitors who see your work?
A.: I hope that people will be able to experience these everyday scenes through a different perspective and feel the charm and beauty they can bring us. In the end, it's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
