The two works deal, each in their own way, with explosions. Pigment
and porcelain vase blasting. Could you please tell us about these two
photographs? How did they come to your mind, and then get from your mind
to your camera?
I love to show things you can't see with the
naked eye, combined with all different subjects and textures. That
includes bursts of powder and explosions. The aesthetics of destruction
are very beautiful. That specific moment you see in these images lasts
barely 1/10 000 of a second. A few moments later, the studio is a mess.
What do you like most about creating still lives?
is a genre in photography where you can start from scratch and be
the 100% creator, not being influenced by a model with a bad-hair day.How do you relate with the Dutch still-life pictorial tradition?
think my work has some heritage from Dutch tradition, in its choice of
props for instance - the vase. But different in its own way at the same
time. Because it is not 'still' at all. It's frozen in time, but very
energetic in its appearance.
What directions would you like to explore in your upcoming photography projects?
I've been working a lot lately with paint, in all its variety and directions. Very exciting results!
