Artist statement, Flying and Floating:

These photographs originate from the game Mafia 2, a simulation of a 45-50’s New York-ish/Chicago-ish world. Completely abandoning the path to become the next mobster I started to look for places which gave me a new view on the city. Trying to achieve the image where a photograph becomes more than the game. No editing or collage involved.
