Play

It started with a fascination for the Lego structures my then-five-year-old son had started building. I thought they were beautiful and started taking them to my studio to photograph. Many Lego creations later I decided to collect them in a book about play, combined with essays and poetry.  To me, play is about following joy, curiosity, my intuition. It’s about the power of imagination and experiment, about learning and adjusting while doing. Play also involves being brave. It requires me to trust the process without knowing the results, approaching the world with an open mind. It turned out that I had to relearn this. The advice I got from my son: just begin. It always turns into something.  The photos in the book are accompanied by essays & poetry by Hannah Aukes, Tom Ruben and Annika Hein. The book is the result of our play and shows, or hopefully lets you feel once again, what it was like, to play.
