Artist's Statement

I photograph without any stage settings or visual manipulations. Many think of black and white photography as an exhausted medium. But I would say that it is the fundamental medium that deals with light, which is so frail, and subject to the vagaries of change that one can never recapture it identically. Light itself has no body; it forms only in conjunction with other things. Photography does too. Light in photography imaginatively emerges.
I photograph believing in the possibility of photography to depict even something invisible. I do not look for something visually obvious, but rather something suggestive like a momentary light which not only casts on an actual scene, but also reflects upon my mind. I wish for the light to reach viewers’ minds in the hope of transcending the usual sentimental resonances, and of touching the viewers’ memories beyond specific cultural backgrounds.
