The series 'Posture & Battle' (portrait) and 'Interior & Sculpture' were taken in the environment of horseracing tracks.
The photographs from 'Interior & Sculpture" are concerned with objects, that appear to
conform to an arbitrary order. They are articles of daily use, that serve as elements of decoration at the same time. Details betray their point of origin.
The images document a place but move beyond the environment depicted. Freed of space and usage, a new image is ready to emerge.
