I am interested in exploring the familiar domestic space with all that it encompasses, moments of intimacy and connection, loss and displacement. Psychological ambiguities become visible when love and companionship encounters longing and disconnection. Illuminations started in 2002 when my relationship was slowly falling apart. While trying to save the relationship we rented a large stylish apartment in Stockholm, hoping that a change of scenery would have a positive effect. The large space amplified the emotional distance, and made the inevitable break even more obvious. As a way of documenting our last days together, I started making one photograph every night. The camera shutter was left opened for 3 to 8 hours every night in a darkened bedroom.
