These photographs were made during a six week road trip through the US. We set off in Atlanta, crossed the southern states, and arrived in San Francisco by the end of May, 2013.

I could define my way of working as one of free expression and aimless wandering. Strolling around and identifying situations, compositions and details of the world surrounding us. Isolated in the frame of the photograph and cut off from the context I transform a banal reality into something enigmatic.
