ABOUT THE WORK
Participation at the VIP Program PARIS PHOTO LOS ANGELES at Fitzpatrick Leland House (2015)

'Trinity'
The number three relates to creativity, intelligence and synthesis.
It also resonates to the energies of body-soulspirit, thought-word-action, past-present-future. Its symbolism is apparent throughout religions and it, furthermore, stands for the principle of growth.
In our ever faster growing civilisation, consumption is at the core
of our need to survive and our esteem. Managing this growth in a sustainable way is the core necessity for us to be able to build our future. Environment-Society-Economy shape the three pillars of
this sustainability. Yet, very rarely are they in balance.


With my series Trinity I want to raise the awareness of this imbalance, by photographing sites that mainly deal with world trade, consumption and growth. The images where done in the dark room by using forms, which left parts of the images underexposed. In some images we only obtain a clear view on the scene through uneven 'pillars' and in other images this view is completely obstructed by raw materials such as gold, aluminum or copper.
