My ultimate purpose in photography is to show the world how it looks through my eyes while capturing a timeless feel of the world. It is less about how things we are familiar look like, than moreover with what lays beyond the surface. Experiences, memories and encounters forming our life and consequently who we are.
Working on long-term project and focusing on black and white film photography has enabled me to to bring back the physicality of art and revealing the only true way of showing a photograph: through print.
At the moment I am based in Nuremberg, Germany.
Why "wasteoffilm"? We all know this situation, we didn’t load the film properly in our camera, the flash didn’t fire or we forgot to remove the lens cap. Ending up with no images at all or with photographs we never anticipated. But isn’t this the beauty of film? The unexpected and the room for experimentation. Of course our images are not a waste of film, but important memories we want to preserve in a tangible medium forever. A reminder to the frames we wasted, but also the times we accidentally found an unintended look.
