PUBLICATION: NEW LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY
My work focuses primarily on the idea of urban sprawling and the urban expansion of its periphery. I photograph urban banality as though it were a romantic painting, trying only to be “stronger than this big nothing” in controlling the space by framing the subject. My aesthetic of the banal obeys its own rules: a ban on living objects, a precise geometrical organization, and the revelation of a specific physical and mental landscape blurring the lines between city and suburb, between suburb and countryside, a process that results in an independent identity.
This aesthetic of the emptiness in my photographic work attempts to understand our current environment.

New Landscape Photography presents contemporary art from around the world that explores the natural and built environments. I am most interested in work that considers the interactions between the two. New Landscape Photography was founded in 2010 and is published every Thursday.
