A photo always gets across memories, emotions and moments gone-by. A private and intimate picture can make them everlasting. Every single photograph is a part of our life and we struggle to protect it and keep it in its uniqueness. That is why I decided to create a storage and a home to our memory, a place we can go to, through different angles, perspectives, doors and ways. They all lead you to the heart of it in their own personal way. Hans’s shape in fact reminds you of a telescope, the one you symbolically need to see something far off in your memory - this is where the name Hans comes from, Hans Lipperhey, the original inventor of the telescope”.
