You – like my only source of light
can sometimes be hard to reach.

Trying to grasp small fractions
like an attempt of reaching the invisible.

Artist statement. (aka short note from me)

This project is important for me from a technical view. I had the idea of creating images with a projector as light source for a long time & I was super excited to build a concept around it.

Inspired by chinese characters, I chose a few phrases to project on my model's faces. The fact that beside the asian culture, the chinese characters are not well known by the majority of people, adds a anonymous character to the project – which I love.
I even scanned in my personal notes from the time I took mandarin lessons lol. So enjoy photographs that are very much on the artsy side with a personal touch by my handwriting.
