Artist Statement

I am a conceptual artist working across media, primarily with photography. I work with a main concept of identity and like to question the nature of human existence. 

I'm interested in human behaviour, and how the structures of society affect our perception, identity and behaviour. I believe, that the world is socially constructed, and we are a by-product of our environment. We mirror ourselves with the societies we identify ourselves with. And with our need to fit in and be accepted in order to feel a sense of belonging, this identity-mirroring plays a major part in the structure of our own personal identity.
