Strange Clouds

Strange Clouds

In March 2020 a global pandemic turned our lives upside down, and for me this period of quarantine was the starting point of creating some new work. I started a photographic journal in daily polaroids, and captured my suddenly changed reality of staying indoors, without work and without any company. I sold the polaroids I made directly on Instagram to assure some income in this uncertain period of time.

My home and immediate surroundings were the canvas within which I moved. Through self-portraits and still lifes I intuitively depicted my everyday life, my feelings and emotions. Each image is unique, not reproducible: a frozen moment from my life, captured in one single Polaroid.
