                                           Vanished Summer 15 and Vanished Summer 14.

In the series Vanished Summer I am inspired by the Icelandic author Gyrdir Eliasson’s texts on solitude and isolation that oscillate between the logical and the fantastic and explore the relationship between man and his surroundings. The seriesincludes photographs of Trailers in summer and winter, inscrutable pictures of nature and of unoccupied houses where man-made environment creates a frame for the imagination of the spectator.
