hos hos hos hos   

The clinical, well-regulated and detached character of a hospital contradicts the personal experience of the individual, both as patient and as doctor, as well as visitor.
These inside/outside experiences inspired me to make a photographic documentary of the working of this medical architecture behind the scenes.

Through evening and night recordings an extraordinary aesthetics revealed itself. The photographs explore an abstract language where graphic compositions capture the spatial dynamic, the rhythmic character of the machinery, the intervals and the strict structure and order of the equipment. 
A clinical portrait that unveils its hidden layers bearing in mind that hope, life and mortality is the force of its operation.
Its aesthetics versus reality.
