For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been in some kind of battle with my self-image. I’ve always struggled with the way I perceived myself vs. the way others perceived me.
As I grew up, I befriended myself and I started to feel more and more comfortable in my own skin, yet I still felt like it was hard for me to form a proper representation of who I was. Not a representation for others, but a representation for myself.
In this series, I try to deconstruct my personal daily life and how I can find myself in these small habits that I feel that not only represent me as a person, but also represent my view on my own feminity and that still connect me to all the different stages I’ve been through so far in my life. It’s not only my perception of me and my life. It’s also my perception of my body. I believe that the most important representation that can exist is the one that we have of ourselves, and for a long time this is something that I was in conflict with. This conflict is endless. We’re in a constant crisis and mutation, but the relationship we have with our own body and our habits is essential.
