I want to show myself, but at the same time I am afraid of it and many times I am hiding rather. My fears and anxiety lock me into myself. Sometimes I try to stretch and break my self–created frames, trying to get out, indicating that I exist.
I worked with the polaroid technique, because the image is already pre-framed, which I can cross. For the maximalism of my compulsion - which in many cases, manifested in an infinite retouching in relation to digital images - the finality and contingency of the polaroid means reassurance, I can not modify the image itself, but I can process it manually.

I studied Textile MA at Budapest Metropolitan University, I graduated in 2020. I love combine photography and manipulation techniques. My works are inspired by my own history, my feelings, emotions, they are self-portraits, internal monologues in various forms and techniques.
