Let's Face It 8 Portraiture
My project 'Memory Self-Portrait' is kind of a diary, a record of very specific time, which, for many reasons, wasnít very happy for me. At the same time, that period of my life was truly transforming, a real turning point. As an intimate atmosphere was very crucial to convey the pain and sadness of those moments, I photographed myself and my very close female friends. That enabled me to get to the point where there was no shame and no will to hide true feelings. Even though the photographs reflect what happened in my life, they are very universal and many women from different cultures can see in those images their personal stories. That is what truly fascinates me, the universal qualities and events which can, and do happen to all women in the world, something we all share.
