As an advertising photographer I manipulated the view on products by setting up lights, backgrounds and decoration for many years. Even retouching on the object itself was accepted as helpful until I came up with the feeling of permanently lying to the audience. Today I allow scenes to be as they are and as they are presenting themselves to me and to the camera. And it's like telling the truth – at last.
