“I wanted to portray the violent transformation of nature in the European periphery. I have experienced that the concept of wilderness, and virgin land untouched by humans, has disintegrated.” –Helene Schmitz

“I’m inspired by love, sleep, taking the bus, baking cookies with a long drink in my hand on rainy days, wood, flowers, magic and girls. Photography is a way to express my emotions.
My pictures are a place to hide away, a place to be free, to tell stories, a possibility to be someone else, a chance to be me, a place to grow and to never grow up.”
