‘As a child I used to think that atoms were actually planets in space, like the earth on which we live. A divine universe in which the tiniest particles are perfect replicas of the whole universe.’ For me, the photo’s in this Opus Magnum Atomium series form personal dioramas on a metaphysical world. A world that lies at the heart of my fascination with themes such as isolation, birth and death, childhood, animals, science and physical alienation.
