Living on an island can evoke a notion of detachment. Enclosed by the sea, exposed in a treeless landscape. Finding a safe niche, carving a shelter from the rock, making a living on the edge of the inhabitable world. The interplay between isolation and belonging. Foreign, from the latin term for "door".

The work is a series of photographs that reflect the search for the essence of holes and their opposites, for hybrid forms and animated stones, for darkness and light, voids and meaning.
