Becoming in Isolation 


I started this series of self-portraits at the start of the lockdown in Paris in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I wanted to explore this surreal world I suddenly found myself in, which wavered between fact and fiction. Each portrait blurs the lines between reality and surreality drawing attention to the deeper meaning and symbolism that surrounds our daily lives. The images are inspired by both fact & fiction, from art & culture, to the news, technology, media & society. Each photo has taken me on a journey of exploration & becoming and has provided not only a structure and a playground to my days in lockdown but a way to connect with those on the other side.
