I am that I am

I aim to portray indigenous people in a beautiful, unique and dignified way, to let people experience the beauty of cultures and connect with each other. 

My work displays the universal beauty of humanity that can be found in people from different cultures and backgrounds, and shows that our differences should be highlighted as stunning rather than be judged. 

I attempt to transcend the transient nature of life by immortalising the soul of humanity. To this end I use digital techniques to merge and manipulate images of persons that are from entirely different eras, different ages and may even be artificial. This mixture of distinctly contrasting time and reality dimensions results in images of humans with an exceptional beauty, exalted to icons. 

I want to raise awareness about how we look at different cultures. If you change the way you look at people, the people you look at change.
