Why 548 days and why the six cities you chose?
had planned that the project will take one year… Since I didn't know
exactly what I wanted to do, but wanted a break from studying, I decided
to escape the winter in Europe. Then I thought, why not get as much out
of it as possible – different places, different architecture, new
spots? Then all of a sudden it was two years, COVID came and it was
three years. Then we needed a title for the book and 548 Days was
relatively fitting, cause I was out in the streets shooting photos for 1
1/2 years. The cities just kind of fell into place. I've been to a lot
of places, but I haven’t found suitable spots for the book everywhere,
or sometimes no skaters. Then there’s security, bad weather, etc., which
all have an influence on shooting a skate photo.
How did the architectural approach come about?
always kind of photographed houses and structures. Mostly objects that
were rigid. Then I stopped taking pictures altogether for a while
because something was missing. I think it was the movement. Now I’ve
found it and I’m enjoying it again.
