“Quotation is the highest compliment you can pay to an author.”

André-Marie Ampère

In my moodboards I try to reflect on the essence of the “Zeitgeist”: the spirit of the present times. For this I search and pick images from the internet and combine them into a new artistic impression of this Zeitgeist. This is art. This is research. It builds on the shoulders of others to cast a new light on different landscapes.

The pictures I use are used as quotations; to pay a compliment to photographers, stylists, models, architects, brands and even companies that help shape this Zeitgeist.

Thank you, artists, for letting me quote you. For letting me pay my respect to you. In case you hate to be quoted, please let me know.
