Abstractions presents a selection of photographic interpretations of the natural world. Through recording and reinterpretation of the nature, the artist aims to represent the familiar in new ways.
The exhibition, titled First Comes Love, presents a series of portraits of LGBTQ couples and is accompanied by their personal stories.
The series consists of male and female portraits representing each of the eight life stages presented in Erik Erikson’s theory of human psychological development. The process for the production of the work is an in-depth combination of contemporary digital tools and traditional photographic processes and techniques.

The photographs in the exhibition were made using a Polaroid 250 Land Camera and expired Polaroid Chocolate peel-apart film. The images suggest the ethereal qualities of landscapes in the early morning fog.
[Un]Remembering is about the process of selecting which experiences we choose to remember and those we choose to forget—in other words, the editing of memories. In this way, the act of forgetting takes on a more active role as we decide what to hold on to and what to let go; the memories we wish to keep intact and those we attempt to recreate.
