without a sound

The series ‘without a sound’ (2008–2009) revolves around the vastness and emptiness of a metropolis; reflecting on the presence of loneliness despite being surrounded by millions of others. The single character that is consistently present amplifies the solitude, yet it is not solely desolation that is conveyed: despite the wide-angle shots, the photographs contain a certain introversion and fragility. Against a backdrop of soulless shells of immense proportion stands one person engaged in something trivial – a spool of tape, a piece of string – in an attempt to carve out a small space he might call his own.
