I've been practicing photography and cinematography since 2001, with a particular
focus on the representations of urban and industrial environments, certain aspects
of devolution/deindustrialization and the layering of past, present and future
Since 2013 I'm researching museum culture(s) and the ways visual materials are
utilized in the narrative tropes of museological exhibitions.
I'm always eager for collaborations in either long term or short term projects.
