The inside of your mind is huge and filled with all kinds of crazy things. The Riddle of the Echo is a project in which I try to show some of the stuff that bubbles up from the deep dark recesses of my mind.

Sometimes I know what these things are about and sometimes I don’t but I feel compelled to make them. Each of the photos is composed of paper cut-outs or found objects and shot on film. The inspiration comes from Carl Jung, mythologies from around the world, and the rantings of Western occult groups.
