Distance Now is an autobiographical piece of work dealing with the emotions and feelings experienced during the break-up of a relationship. The title refers to the psychological distance between my partner and I, both at the time when we broke up and afterwards. The exhibition collects photographs I took between 2002 and 2005. Some of them were taken during this break-up whereas others are rather documents of my past life. The aim of this project is to show a relationship from all angles; the illusion of love, emotional confusion, despair, fear and dependency.

"A constructed life in a occupied house. Winter. Berlin.

Stopping cars through Europe. Music, photography.

Roads and forests.

Fucking in public places.

A reconstructed life in a rental appartment. Paris.

The songs stayed with me.

The cottage somewhere between Hungary and Slovaquia and the rocks

in Sweden."
