    In my work, I follow my long-standing interest in examining the medium of photography. I am looking for its limits, definitions and current limits. I’m creating a space installation, where I work with photos, photographic objects, and videos. I concentrate on a work with photography and its relationship to space. I leave the two-dimensional frame of the photography, investigating its relationship to space and sculptural potential. The stimulus for me become restrictions limiting the photographic medium.
