This is my personal Wunderkammer. A collection of fragments. Objects and experiences that accompanied me as I was growing up, traveling through wonderlands arriving to this point of presence.
Fiction has immensely influenced my visual language. I operate by the reconstructing capacity of photography, that is by transforming elements from the existing world it shows us a parallel universe that still leads back to something faithful. This is the magical realism I work with and live in.
My work evolves into contemporary yet timeless tales about the human subconscious. I produce detailed narratives within singular frames, frequently staging scenes that experiment with the notion of reality. I am interested in exploring the psyche, the female self, including my own femininity and identity. I often transport my viewers into a feminine, surrealist wonderland, a fairy-tale-like environment to process memories, and to explore the tension that lies both within the physical and psychological space of the female identity.
Starting with a long pre-production period, my artistic method goes very much like in a film production. I combine extensive periods of research with fine artistic solutions, creating a picturesque but sometimes disturbing aesthetic and filmic perspective. I only use post production to a certain limit. It’s very important to me that my images are not manipulated digitally; they are a surreal, yet faithful representation of what’s in front of my camera.
The core objective of my practice is to spotlight magical details that otherwise would not be visible. Through my work I intend to develop new forms of psychological storytelling, using photography as a tool of myth-making.
