Artist statement Through the urge of expressing myself in my photographs I felt the magic memories from my childhood deeply anchored within my soul. Summer vacations with long drives through unknown landscapes, in eager expectation of the coming holiday adventures, sea breeze in my hair, the smell of pine trees, the play with local kids hiding in magic places, the innocence with big dreams for the future. I am transferring these memories into my art photography with the unconscious desire to save them into my adult life. I love to create mystic, fairytale small worlds which loose their property of a flat image in becoming a landscape with vivid texture, becoming paradise. My wish is to transfer the observer into the place and let her/him experience his/her magic moments of childhood.
