About

My self-portrait photographs, masks, and costumes are part of an autobiographical narration of a lifelong struggle with depression, the aftermath of domestic violence trauma, and the challenges of being a woman and a refugee in an ever-changing climate.

With my camera, my objective is to isolate and communicate fleeting and defining life-moments through an interdisciplinary approach that coalesces several forms of media into one photographic image that is, at its core, a longitudinal identity narrative. My work seeks to ask what constitutes womanhood and how to reach a more transgressive understanding of it. How to use my body and my camera in the arduous task of questioning, challenging, and advocating for an improved and transgressive understanding of women’s corporeal matters such as sex/sexuality, maternity, and physical and psychological well being.
