darkroom setup

“I was inventing a language for people to see the everyday things that I also see... and show them something different, simply the other side.”
- F. Woodman

Barbarian Days contains personal projects in film photography and music. My photos are primarily self-processed using traditional printing techniques in the darkroom, while music has always been a constant source of inspiration. Playing music and working in the darkroom have a wonderful way of slowing things down and allow for a much needed opportunity to spend time in my head, tapping into mysterious surfs of sine waves in a dark and unhurried space. Both music and photography bring me to a place where I feel most connected to the surrounding world and the world of dreams. The stillness turns magic out of ordinary stuff, the things we usually pass by without noticing. I enjoy finding poetry and narrative in moments of everyday life, simple gestures, intimacy and detachment.
