A consciousness about changes in the world began when I was a WWF Ranger as a child, collecting money for the endangered animals and other negative developments relating to animals and nature. I felt sorry for the poor animals that are slaughtered to feed our mouths. Now more mature and as a photographer I am still interested in these two topics, related to human behaviour. Travelling is my passion and big part of my work, because then I discover new eating rituals and food cultures which differentiate from my Western point of view. First I observe what happens in daily life and transform that into my own reality which could result in a fashion series, still lifes or single images. With these, I answer my main question of how we try to control our lives related to food.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONTROL IF YOU CAN LET IT GO, a good quote from Nanine Lenning, which is what I try to discover within my staged photography. My obsession with food was always there, but after living in Finland it came back stronger than ever before.
