What inspires you?
Anything really, life, people and everyday life. But to refer to my Aqueous work, I initially was inspired to shoot the series by watching pouring milk into coffee. 
How would you describe your series “Aqueous”?
You see a lot of ink in water shots, but I wanted to do something that had more body to it and that gave the feeling of an organic form. So I played around with varieties and density of paint and water. — And many people wrote about you referring your work to aliens, how come? — Yes, the images seem to resemble either an alien, outer world/space or another water world. Just trying to create a nice feeling and something that people like to look at. 
How did you create Aqueous, did you know about the technic behind the series? 
It is a lot about experimenting, with different kinds of paints and liquids and things, before I finally arrive at what I like or what I do. — In the office, we often tried to figure out how the actual work process looks like, what about that? — I shoot in a tank. Obviously the lighting is key to how it looks. So I spend a lot of time making sure the lighting is right for the shots. And there is paint. I might thicken the water up with glycerin and stuff like that.
