For four years, I captured images. Concepts. With the intention to create something that would give the viewer a sense of alienation.

Coming from a background in dance I observed how the abstraction of a movement can tell a story. When choreographing I develop images in my head which I then try to capture in a photographic way. They become stills. Frozen in a world full of colours. A solitary world with unvisited gestures. A place where you get acquainted with the characters. Characters without a visible identity. Nobody knows why she is there. Or maybe they do? Sometimes she will be alone in her own fragile state of mind. Sometimes she will be accompanied by another figure. At times, it can be quite surreal. A sense of loneliness prevails.

Trying to hide but in doing so she draws the attention. To flee from your own identity but not knowing where you are really running from. To take a pose and to wait until everything passes you by. To escape into the background where we don’t think we belong just to rediscover ourselves. [Official Website]
