No new exhibitions anymore

Dear Friends,

It took me some time to take an important decision. After long reflection I have decided that I will no longer show my artwork on exhibitions. There are several reasons for that. First of all, I don’t have the time to do so anymore as I have decided to use my spare time for philanthropic projects. Helping those in need gives sense to my life and to what I am doing. One of the other reasons is that I do not enjoy anymore showing the same artwork as I am always requested to show my decay collection.

Decay photography was a spiritual exercise for me. As subject I have chosen to deal with old age, decay and death, to show the beauty of it. We all fear death. This exercise has brought me closer to the significance of death and the beauty of it. I am not suicidal in any way, but I have discovered the beauty of life and death, and also that both of them are just an illusion. What is, is eternal and tremendous beauty as soon as we open our eyes.

I will keep my website alive and post new photos whenever I do some. I will also answer requests and still sell my art. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or request. I’ll be happy to answer.
