Alter ego & Inside Out (2018)

A series of large-format selfportraits taken with a pinhole camera, in which I explore the subconscious and the transformations of the self, whether we are one or many, and what happens when we look at ourselves from the outside. Work that has a great influence in this project are the photographs by Francesca Woodman, Roger Ballen and Cindy Sherman, as well as Douglas Hofstadter’s cognitive theories. Part of this work was exhibited in the final year exhibition of the Warehouse Art School at OVADA (Oxford) from 21 June to 15 July 2018.
