ARTIST STATEMENT  
Interested in how collective memories and borders influence identities and how communities deal with past and traditions. I mostly approach my stories with empathy and a regard for intimacy. My practice is concerned with the notion of belonging and of sharing. Through photography, I question the bridges between the identity of the singular and the collectivity, which I visualize by concentrating on the human relationships in their context and with their contexts.
