Honorable Mention / 2021 / Portraiture / Self-Portrait

Second thoughts

This serie of self-portraits depicts the journey of the bride I was ten years ago having unarticulated second thoughts. I found myself in an anxious and frighten state, incapable of facing the reality, self-contemplating my non-existence between closed doors.

Sarah Fleury is a non-professional fine art photographer currently based in Brussels.
Her interest in photography started two years ago when buying a camera to take pictures during her travels. What started as a mere travel goal became a revelation.
After a career as a sociologist and an high school teacher, photography became not a choice but a necessity.
Her work focuses on on portraiture (people & animals), lifestyle, landscape, architecture and conceptual photography as well as on exploring the themes of the void of existence and trauma, through self-portraiture.
