Photography is a way of life, my voice, my language and a friend.
To achieve more order in my chaos of thoughts and impressions, I seek silence and peace.
My body and mind are more able to digest life. I can breathe. I can create.
Epilepsy has effected me my whole life. It is formative and challenging.
It is like darkness all of a sudden being pulled down and I function on a brim of the light that leaks in.
Photography gives me a tool to reach that light.
My wish is to be more visible. To own my own story.

`Don`t be ashamed to be a human being- be proud!
Inside you vault after
Another opens endlessly
You`ll never be complete
And that`s as it should be
