Artist statement

One could say I’m a domestic person. I always get very attached to places. To me, having a steady place to call home is very important.  

Even in this rapidly changing world, people still have a sense of belonging. We might be less rooted to a single place, but there are always some basic elements that we need to feel at home somewhere. 

In my work, I’m trying to understand the way different people deal with their personal surroundings. By photographing various living situations, I’m hoping to get to the core of what it means to call something a home.
