Vision

I love images, be they moving or still. To tell stories through imagery. I give you glimpses into worlds that make you feel. I’m looking for the numinous in my images, the wholly other, like the surface of an alien planet or unknown cosmological phenomena.

As an artist I´m always looking for opportunities in film (features and shorts), TV ads, musicvideos, photography. If you would like to collaborate, contact me.
