"I started photographing empty tennis courts in southern Switzerland in 1999, on the border to Italy. The work came about by chance. Some time after I'd moved to Paris, I was back in Switzerland, walking in the woods near were I grew up and I came across an abandoned tennis court. I photographed that one, then courts around the neighbourhood where I grew up, and have continued to photogragraph deserted tennis courts ever since. In general I think about images from my adolescence and also think of the visual experiences I've had with film as an experience of real life."
