Digital art series
I tell stories about women who fight for equality and a place in society. Modern women accommodate many roles in one and the same person, but are often reduced to one; career woman, mother, wife, princess i.a. Since I have chosen a male-dominated career, photographer, I have experienced prejudism on the basis of my gender: not strong enough and not plain enough.
Mixed media series
Queer Joy is about intimacy and togetherness. It’s about the relationships we have with ourselves, but also with others. It’s the joy of being able to be yourself fully and completely and to demand acceptance in society. I show people and moments where the joy of being seen and loved is the main element.
Mixed media series – work in progress
“Stories I tell” is a series of images that explore a fictional world of people and places. The images are a part of a fantasy world I created in order to control my surroundings. and not the other way. They are the world I run to when I need to escape the traumas I experienced as a child and grown-up.
