For this photographer and writer, words and images are invitations to slip into the absurd. The artist's photographs play on the notion of "Irrelevance", extracting individuals from their context and thereby removing their raison d'être. Scenes from everyday life or current news are reconstituted in a uniform, neutral decor. Objectivity and neutrality become synonymous with a disconcerting normality.
