BEING ALONE WITH OTHERS
The pictutes in the series Alone with Others have been taken in real environments in India, Sweden, Spain, England and USA, photographed with a tilt and shift large format camera that creates the impression of looking at miniature landscapes.
Being alone with others is a series depicting public places such as beaches, parking lots, ski slopes and parks, places where we are part of a collective, but still remain anonymous and seperate. The situations depicted are like quiet meditations on the complex sensation of wanting to experience a sense of belonging, whilst still maintaining a distance.
The series can also be seen as a lighthearted observation of the existential dilemma of being alone in our personal experience of life.
We are born alone and die alone.
