I love to show or tell a story through my photography. Like my current project ‘Faith in Europe’ where I want to show the spirituality within our own European societies, by focusing not only on the historic places and the people worshipping them but also by trying to capture the invisible feeling and atmosphere of belief. The poetic focus of ‘Faith in Europe - Between belief and reality’ is our desire for belief and identity. The desire for a connection to the earth we live on and the human search for spirituality.
