Untitled #1 2018

Untitled #1 is part of the photography series F20.5 which depicts the confrontation of my own childhood, during which my father suffered from residual schizophrenia.
Through the reconstruction of my own past and reinterpretation of father’s visual hallucinations, I am staging situations in which I place myself and my twin sisters in order to acknowledge and show the influence the illness had on the entire family.
I use photography as a therapeutic instrument, to relive and accept, from a distance, powerful experiences and memories, portray and transform them and, in this way, to get to know myself anew.

Untitled #3 2020

Untitled #3 is a part of photography series “Becoming” which deals with growing into womanhood.
Inspired by Simone de Beauvoir’s statement “One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.”I seek to re-examine the notion of becoming a woman through a series of photographs based on myths, legends and general beliefs about a woman and her nature. By photographing young women in archetypal “feminine” roles, I am dispelling myths about the “nature” of a woman and questioning the terms “feminine” and “femininity” in order to try and differentiate between what is biologically conditioned and what is socially constructed.
“Becoming” seeks to reclaim woman’s autonomy of her body, fertility, motherhood and womanhood in general.

Untitled #4 2018

Untitled #4 is part of the photography series F20.5 which depicts the confrontation of my own childhood, during which my father suffered from residual schizophrenia.
Through the reconstruction of my own past and reinterpretation of father’s visual hallucinations, I am staging situations in which I place myself and my twin sisters in order to acknowledge and show the influence the illness had on the entire family.
I use photography as a therapeutic instrument, to relive and accept, from a distance, powerful experiences and memories, portray and transform them and, in this way, to get to know myself anew.
