Interior/Exterior The camera obscura phenomenon, at once simple and magical, never ceases to fascinate me. I have worked with it intensely ever since 1996. For me camera obscura is a method by which to survey the living environment and mental landscapes, summoning subconscious feelings into the light of day. When the space transforms into a ”dark room” it conjures up the core and magic of photography again and again. That is when I feel most acutely that I am working with light. My idea in embarking on the “Interior/Exterior” project was a nocturnal inspiration: in a room converted into a camera obscura I could capture an image of a person and at the same time that person’s room and the view from the window – what an all-encompassing method by which to photograph a person’s living environment! The originally documentary idea soon expanded in a new direction. The pictures began to form not only a person’s living environment but also to constitute an excursion into the mental landscape: reflections of memories, reveries, fears and dreams.
