"I prefer to photograph animals on their own, as an individual. Whenever you run into them in such a situation, lets say on a walk through the fields, there is always that short moment they freeze themselves after they spotted you. That moment touches me. There is something in that motionless body language that we also find on nineteen-century photography. This kind of encounter in a landscape is quite mysterious to me. We see eachother, but at the same time we will be never able to speak to eachother. As if we are separated by a thick glassplate. And in some occasions I was sure there was someone behind that glassplate that was familiar to me" (from the website of the artist).
