I choose to look through the lens in order to see. The language of photography helps me understand how I position myself in the world, where I have come from and where I might go next. In my pictures I am exploring psychological impressions of my life of “Being Solo” in New York. I create these portrait scenes that translate the processes and obsessions I go trough my life here with the uncertain hope of bringing some light of understanding to myself. I collaborate with artist friends. The resulting images reveal my vision of the life inside the artwork of women artists, both revealing the now.
