  • Catalogue Essay

    "I realised that with this photography I was making things closer to the truth of the way we see things. We see everything in focus, everything, but we don’t see it all at once, that’s the point. We take time.”

    Academy of Arts in London, and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, among many
