"I consistently tie my creative principle to the narrative approach. Regardless of whether it is about testimonies, which I find in my environment, or whether I register them in a book, a film or a brief text. The key is that the theme is challenging enough to trigger my creative charge. However, in depicting the selected topics, I do not merely transfer these images into another medium in an illustrative way, although I use an entirely realist manner. Rather, I re-interpret the themes regularly by infusing them with personal comments, establishing my own artistic standpoint towards the individual theme expressed."
