My photographs are a diary, I’m not talking about mermaids, centaurs or maids from the Dutch Golden Age, I’m talking about myself; everything that appears in the images are very specific things to me.

But art is amazing because it is a universal code that can be deciphered in a thousand ways. I can’t expect people to understand my photography the way I understand or feel it; a person is free to interpret: he or she will have associations related precisely to his or her personal “baggage” (cultural, professional, social, emotional…).

Can a person not feel anything? Of course, and that’s fine. I do not aim to “hit” everyone. I’m not trying to convey anything to anyone. At the same time, of course, I’m very happy when people respond and share their thoughts with me. That’s precious.
