The new mobile Photographic Hammer at BredaPhoto


In May 2016 my proposal ‘The Photographic Hammer’ won the competition ‘Design a camera obscura’ of BLASt (Breda Landscape, Architecture and city planning) and BredaPhoto International Photo Festival. The new mobile camera obscura can make paper prints and photographical ceramic reliefs. I’ll be showing the camera with the Photographic Hammer at BredaPhoto festival and will be making a photographic work by exposing on wet clay.

Project ‘Triumph of the Garden’ at Shiryaevo Biennale, Samara, Russia


From 12-08/ 27-09 I will present my project ‘Triumph of the Garden’ at the Shiryaevo Biennale, Samara, Russia. Organised by NCCA Samara.

I intend to investigate dacha gardening as an aspect of Russian society that operates outside the financial system and in the process of doing so avoids the alienation of modern day consumers with nature. I will convert a dacha into a camera obscura by mounting a lens in the wall. In front of the lens, bathing in sunlight, a cabbage from the garden will be placed. Inside the projection of the cabbage is engraved in a surface of wet Volga clay using my invention the ‘Photographic Hammer’.

This project has been made possible by the generous support of Creative Industries Fund NL and the European Cultural Foundation
