Statement

To Hold This Mystery

"To Hold This Mystery" is a photographic series examining the natural world in an enigmatic light to suggest there is more to our surrounding environment than meets the eye. Highlighting sometimes overlooked and underappreciated occurrences, this project reveals how the mystical qualities of life do not only exist in pristine wilderness or grand landscapes but can be found everywhere. I think of the camera as an emotional link to nature, one that attempts to bridge the limits of human language with the natural world.

Jury selection

There is something slightly spooky and uncanny in this work that I like very much. The way he uses color enhances the mystery of the images.
