My work tells of an enigmatic, entrancing world, in which dreams and reality intertwine and serve as equal counterparts to each other's surreal existence. "Lost and Found" belongs to a part of said world, as it focuses on mental health and fragility.

My photography aims to intrigue, challenge your understanding if those intricacies of the mind that frighten and distress you. It gets to light the spark of introspection. 

I can’t stop thinking about the time I felt burned out. A chain of events has lead me to my first (and hopefully last) panic attack. That was due to the way I was handling the constant changes that occurred, feeling that I was losing control. Later this year, I found out that control is an illusion and I learned to let go of things. Finally, I managed to emulate these feelings into artworks.
„This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you” - F. Nietzsche
This artwork came to life during the lockdown, when everything seemed to crumble. Behind me, a blue sky showing the good times that have passed quickly and a helping hand with no intention of grabbing me during my plunge into the void. I am still feeling anxious about these crazy times we are living, but eager to create more.
