The two elements of macro photography that truly fascinated me were texture and form. Eventually I discovered the immense possibilities of working with the…Details

The ‘Midnight’ series is a project that I have been rolling over in my mind for years. For some reason, it always felt a bit too ambitious production-wise and I always ended up favoring other concepts instead. So one day I actually sat down and worked out the practicalities of what it would take to…Details
