I started this series of self-portraits at the start of the lockdown in Paris due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. I wanted to explore this surreal world I suddenly found myself in, which wavered between fact and fiction. I gathered inspiration from the present and the past, from paintings, photographs, cinema, fashion, social media & the daily news as well as observations from my everyday. 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.
