My series “surrounded by nothing but our own imagination” has won 1st prize in the Terminal Contest by PhotoWerkBerlin and will soon be exhibited in Berlin as part of the European Month of Photography!

See link for more details:

we spoke our prayers


all there ever was and all there ever will be is here and now


life on the streets runs like blood through my veins


So have I


past in present


i counted my blessings. I am rich.


the day the fog returned


towards the unknown


where uncertainties became possibilities


softly spoken words


we stood in awe as we entered this world


it’s a strange world


we chased our dreams until we could go no further


home away


NebenanSicht … das Leben an sich (LndB / Art Week Berlin)

silentpoems13 Fotokünstler erzählen ihre Geschichten. Sie berichten von alltäglichen Schatten und vom Licht. Von launigen Erinnerungen. Von der Poetik der Abnutzung. Von zwischenmenschlicher Nähe und urbaner Anonymität. Oder einfach von der Ökonomie der Sexualität.

Bildinhalt und Mentalität prallen aufeinander und erzeugen so einen eigenartigen Resonanzraum.

Künstler: Eva Brunner, Michele Caliari, Marion Elias, Camilla Elle, Jeroen Goulooze, Stefanie Hoevermann, Susanne Leibold, Ann Lofy, Lutz Matschke, Stephanie Neumann, Oliver Parzer, Christian Reister, Vera Ruettimann, Irina Tübbecke.

I:I:I:I –  featuring Tristan Davies, Nikki Lam, Kimberley Liddle and Oliver Parzer explores the internal and external duration of self, its translucent nature as well as its complexity in relations to our surroundings.

A series of site specific projects, I:I:I:I allows the viewer to interactively delve into each of the artists minds, and interpretations of one’s self.  Oliver Parzer posits that ‘I’ can only be found if you are willing to taking the steps to embrace the inherent solitude of human experience. Nikki Lam views the identity of self as framed by the constitution of space, and such identity is realised only through vulnerability and change. Tristan Davies notions that the conception of self exists only in the past, found through nostalgic memories, and momentary thoughts. Kimberley Liddle explores the sense of self in the present. Stripping away all layers of the conscious mind and the external materiality of self, Liddle’s mixed media sculpture portrays the instantaneity of the subconscious. Does ‘I’ exist as asolid definable state, or is the idea of the self an illusion created by a constant flux of moments and events?

I:I:I:I takes us on a fascinating journey and challenges our own understanding of the concept of “self”, along with challenging the mainstream execution of mixed media projects.

Opening Night: Friday 9 August 6-9pm | Exhibition Dates: 9 August – 23 August 2013

all that seemed lost suddenly lay bare before my eyes


fading memories
