State of Mind
‘State of Mind’ is a photographic series, and ultimately a book, about the individual quality of mysterious strangers. The images were captured over a period of several years traveling in countries such as Japan, Portugal, Hungary,
Malaysia, Spain, South-Korea, Romania, Russia, Taiwan – and what emerged is a visual narrative on the poetic
quality of individuality and what it means to be lost in thoughts.
The State of Mind series is about the “thinking moments” and the uncertain atmosphere surrounding the people and places
encountered on the way.
