I am...
a photographer/artist based in Old street London. I work as a freelance photography assistant to Peter Mallet/art recorder for galleries like Haunch of Venison, Christies, Lazarides, Saatchi and for fine art photographer Richard Learoyd, a creator of the biggest camera obscura.
About my artwork
My project called REDRAWING THE LINES, it's a collection of the images dealing with the ‘body / self’ dilemma, expressing the relationship between contemporary self-portraiture and realm of the monstrous defined by Western society’s relationship to the malleable and the indefinite. The vintage point is to reclaim the female body to challenge the boundaries of gender and identity within patriarchal society and reject the classical concept of beauty and offering a new vision of the human body: irregular, imperfect, in evolution, decaying, disabled but still fascinating. As a study case, I’ve been using my own example, after dealing with self-loathing and anxiety for many years. The project is based on photo–therapy approach, self-portraiture and collaboration with my mum.

Another project is called LIMITATION, it's a long term project. I'm collecting opinion from known and not-known people, groups, individuals, what is limitation, what does it mean to them, does it exist?
Exhibition consist of imagery with letters written by hand, with opinion about this theme plus video projection.
