Intrigued by cultural diﬀerences in perception and approaches towards the body, I use the advice and treatment given to me by doctors of alternative medicine as a trigger for the creative process. Finding conventional medicine sometimes too invasive and radical, I am researching how to strengthen my integrity by implementing preventive and on the surface less invasive, yet powerful methods. Sometimes I ask myself how safe those natural, incompletely verified health solutions are.
I turned the camera on myself, keeping on the alternative healing methods, and using photography as a therapy too. Through the camera lens I was looking for myself, feeling completely lost in the world, in a time when I should already be a strong adult. I was re-defining myself in relation to my mother and sister, looking at myself, unblocking cumulated tensions, searching for my own, unique strength.
