I photograph at night urban spaces that seems lonely, desperate and banal to me. In a processual act I destroy my analogue black-and-white material partially. By means of these uncontrollable interferences I string together segments of images, which are to a greater or lesser extent recognizable. New images develop from these segments where I manipulate the perspective and the logic of composition thus questioning reality. In this context I deliberately do not process the images digitally.

The series started in 2000 and is an ongoing project.
