Le laid peut être beau ; le joli, jamais.
The ugly can be beautiful; the pretty never can.
Paul Gauguin –

Photography, for me, is escapism. When I look through my camera, I see what I want to see and forget about the world around for a moment. I’m in a happy bubble, another reality I create for myself and like to get lost into. By sharing my photos, I hope to give others a moment of escapism.

I am interested in textures, patterns, contrasts and things that I find visually striking. I am not interested in showing what the object actually is; I focus on the aesthetic and the form, so my pictures tend to be abstract.

There isn’t one unique way of looking at my photos; they are open to interpretation. I am sometimes asked, “what is this a photo of?”. The answer is irrelevant. It can be anything you like; whatever you see in the photo is valid. In fact, I love to hear what people see in my pictures, what they trigger in their minds. I do not wish to pin things down. The point – if there is one – is not to define, limit and restrict, but to spark the imagination, to open the doors of the mind. So please feel free to comment and let me know what you see in those pictures!


I have a background in fine art and film photography and an interest in colours, textures, patterns and the interaction of light with matter. My photos are rarely edited as I prefer playing with the camera to playing with software.

  1. Just wanted to say thank you for visiting my blog and commenting and being my 200th follower! Looks like we sometimes shoot similar things so I will reciprocate and add you to my list of blogs I follow.


    1. I do love that quote. This was the topic for an art history / theory exam in high school. We had to comment on it. It struck such a chord with me, it’s never left me.

  2. Hello Karine !
    Looks really good here, fine art photography ! I like it although my own work is much more play with photoshop… Stay healthy, all the best, Jürgen


  3. Great to see your work. On interpretation, I agree entirely. An art historian proposed the notion of the “beholder’s share”. The work has meaning in the viewer’s context. Contexts can be shared – or not.
