London, October 2012. Last night, I went out with my friend to catch a few shiny moments after dark around Canary Wharf. Of course, this being London, we were greeted with rain as soon as we put our cameras on tripods. But then, being Londoners this did not stop us from continuing our adventure and so we discovered the charm of South Quay.

London, October 2012. Capturing the live auction at the fundraising event in benefit of Anti-Slavery International. During the live auction I became interested in the image forming between the fast moving auctioneer and the projected artwork. Looking at the repetitive movements, I wanted to capture a moment the gesture suggested an auction while keeping a strong focus on the projected artwork.

London, October 2012. On my weekly walk across the Hungerford Bridge, I can rarely resist taking a photo of this classic landscape. Taking this picture has something timeless. St Pauls has marked the London skyline for centuries, endlessly painted and photographed since then. By taking this photo I join them within my own timeline.

London, October 2012. While exploring the construction sites in the City I was fascinated by this colourful flower sitting on the pavement. And I took the photo because I was surprised and amazed about the contrast between the sculpture and its surroundings.
As I turned around, I saw this other sculpure. I took the photos with the intention to melt the reality into a pattern to underline the sense of artificiality and lifelessness while keeping the statue as a visiual focus.

Paul Benney's Night Paintings at Somerset House I felt inspired to experiment with the perspective of focus to work between the abstract and the concrete, showing idea and reality at the same time.
Antony Gormley exhibition in the Centro Cultural do Banco do Brasil in Rio de Janeiro. Inspired by art to create art. The moment artistic inspiration leads to artistic inspiration and forms a perpetuum.

Exploring the meaning of angles and perspective, I like how the photo changes its meaning. The closer I get, the more we are left to wonder. Loosing its context, the wheel seems a pattern of lines and shades. The only reference to its size are the leaves, indicating we are looking at something big.
