Black(out) & White(ness) is a personal project of (mostly) black and white photographs and illustrations. I started making them on my journey through Marokko. A land that fascinates me with it's obsession of patterns in architecture, fashion and graphic design. I was curious about the visual outcome of a reduced color palette and fascinated about the blurred line of "design" and "art". I also wanted to research what the word "beauty" and "aesthetic" means for me these days. As well as the tiny line between intuition ("Blackout") and conception ("Whiteness").
I hope you'll find looking at the images as enjoyable as me making them.
