The Beautiful City shows cloudy dreamlike images, like distant memories. These elliptical, out of focus images lead us from a beautiful city street to an anonymous housing estate. Somewhere along the way we might contemplate on what we see when we see a landscape. Individual landscapes turn into general experiences. Through these images I deal with issues of identity and place, belonging to something and reaching for something else. Is it the city street or the asphalt yard of the housing estate where I belong to? The oval ground glass is connected with old ladscape paintings and early photographic portraits, both signs of attachment and ownership. This is how I mark my world and memories.
