BEYOND

My work on superficiality is a portrait study of my teenage sister. Going back to my own time as a teen, the time when I defined my appearance as one of the main important aspects of my personality. Superficially shaped me into an insecure young adult. It wasn't until I questioned the meaning of beauty that I could start to see myself and others without a thick wall of judgment. Superficiality is for me a layer we all put upon our selves and others, and it isn't until we break down thus layers that we can start to see our selves as for how we really are.


The photographs are put together as a sort of college, with overlapping images. Photographed in the Israelian desert and in front of a window in my Berlin home. It is a series of two images that are based upon a feeling of confusion and search for an understanding of oneself.
