I will be looking for projects that propose a visual forms of thought. What interest me are works – sensual as well as conceptual – that are able to draw the beholder into their world, seduce him, or her, into reflection about the world we live in. I very much value the ease of working between fact and fiction, visual intelligence, distance, and the ability to go beyond the established uses and conventions of photography.
