Stills from video

(Not yet titled) 2019 on going


An on going research in which I question the role distance has in my work. Through written text I raise questions to myself in order to understand my relation with distance.


Distance to my homecountry

Distance to my mother tongue

Distance to my family

Distance to the subjects I photograph

Distance to so many things


Through distance I noticed I am able to put things better into perspective. The outcome of the work is most of the times very intimate.


I was invited to present this research at the NDSM Treehouse. I presented a video work in which I combined written text with film. In order to make this research more insightful I asked other people to answer the question 'What does distance mean to you?'
