In my work I use photography to examine the relationship between mass visual culture and the way that reality is perceived and valued. My working method is based on collecting, processing, and photographically recycling material that is deeply rooted in the perceptions of society. This system of representation augments what is generally overlooked and raises questions that provoke consideration of preconceptions.
