For a long time I searched for the most "innocent" of all activities until I finally started photographing "objects" encountered mainly in the urban space (but not only), for example: broken wall fragments, shapes, textures or objects that are difficult to judge what they actually are and usually no attention is paid to them. I’m amazed by the human ability to give meaning to these unimportant items hence I attempt to name the objects I came across referring either to the European Heritage or to the prose of everyday life. Here one can try to paraphrase the philosopher Immanuel Kant and state: visibility without concepts is blind and concepts without visibility are empty.
Trying to put an additional light onto my artistic practice I could also refer to William Blake’s words coming from Auguries of Innocence:
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
