I usually compare this to traditional sketches. I take snapshots, without looking for a special photo. I photograph a motif or figure that catches my eye and interests me. When I paint a picture, it is then that I compose—I find a figure interesting and search for something that goes together with it. At the end, the work is put together from different sources. The medium of photography plays an important role, of course, since it allows you to capture moments you could otherwise not capture — simply because of the speed of the camera. But at the same time, it is difficult to distinguish, since the artistic process is influenced by a number of things — things that have influenced me, such as film, commercials, media in general and art history.
