Surrounded by Serenity

Year
2014

Technique
Pinhole photos in customized frames, 20cm x 30cm (frame size)

“Before I can fall asleep I often try to transport myself to a place where I can find peace. An infinity of random images make place for a bright white area. Although there seems to be no beginning and no end – I put myself in the middle. Here I can enjoy the nothingness surrounding me.”

The photos are made with a pinhole camera (a shoebox). The photos are produced directly in the camera on photographic paper and developed in a darkroom. Surrounded by Serenity shows the negatives that where developed directly out of the camera, what you see is a white space that at the scene was actually really dark.
