“Neverland” is a location invented by author Author J.M. Barry for his drama play and novels and famously known as the home of Peter Pan. Neverland and its inhabitants are often interpreted as metaphors for escapism, immortality and refusal to grow up.

This project plays with the notion of a photograph or a photographer being able to capture truth & reality; despite objectivity on our side. Not only is a photographers presence influencing the resulting pictures but by always being forced to chose and crop, the truth may not be told in its entirety, solely through images. Audio and audiovisuals may be additional tools for objectively documenting while photos alone leave something to the imagination. This is not to deny the power of photojournalism presently (or at all in the past) - but to question how truth and reality in images is easily manipulated, twisted and still can be perceived as true. 

These photos may make you question what is staged or otherwise manipulated and what coincidentally really just happened. All photos are shot with medium format.
