I am a photographic artist working mainly with self portraits and still life as a way of exploring issues of identity, existence and the wide world of connection.
My work revolves around notions of the mundane and the everyday. Since the very early days of my photographic journey I was intrigued by the way we experience the world both inwards and outwards in our daily lives, and what these experiences might mean for our identity.
I am working around the concepts of Existence, Identity, Life and Birth as beginnings, connections with our inner self, and as bonds with our inherent truths; as well as with concepts such as fragility, sensitivity and similar sensations.
By performing in front of the camera, I am both composing unique moments of symbolic acts and opening a direct conversation between myself and the audience.
