This project explores the thought process at play in the act of "seeing" what is in the process of disappearing. The series weaves together the visible and the invisible, science and belief, the dynamics between the Self and the Other, shaping our responses to instinct.
The photographic project Die Tore is a visual reaction to the growth of my mother's brain tumors that appeared in 2017.
The unfolding of a person's creative mind can overcome significant obstacles besieging their existence, and humanity is distinguished by its propensity to react sensitively to the silence of nothingness in the invisible.
Here, I advocate for space in the darkness of the unpredictable and the apprehensible.
Through technical or general errors, the images have found their own space: new dimensions where their status is more that of intriguing intruders than of suffered displacements. The ambiguous relationship between this acceptance of chance and the impossibility of control contrasts with the discipline and art of manipulating the photographic chamber. The photographic chamber has become for me a vision apparatus, to rediscover, in the materiality of things and beings, freedom and traces of a wandering of emotions.

Die Tore has built itself. The series mirrors the development and spread of a cancerous mass: unpredictable, mutant, and invasive.
