A Dance in the Dark

In 2011 I had finished my academic year at Metàfora and was debating intensely with my husband whether or not to start a family.

After art school I finally felt confident and focused on my artistic practice, which did not seem compatible with having children and changing the center of my universe to revolve around them. Also my father had just been diagnosed with cancer and was not expected to survive the year.

Whilst He Was Sleeping is a series of photographs taken during this period of forced transition into adulthood.

A Dance in the Dark is a sequel project using similar lighting techniques creating intimate aura like portaits.
