My staged photography with a dark and ominous atmosphere has a cinematic feel to it. Having been influenced by Hollywood and pop culture, I grew up with this distorted view about what life was supposed to be like. Growing up and figuring out that life isn’t a movie, threw me off and disappointed me a little. The disillusionment formed me and my work. I determined I should show imperfectness with real people, showing emotions we are not usually allowed to display or at the very least, aren’t usually shown in movies to have. My photography is mostly focused on women, having been underrepresented as the ‘main character’ of a story for too long.
