16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

This is a frame from the photo series “Body parts”. It’s important for me to tell the story through a hint, showing only a few details. I like creating a conflict of visual language and meaning. It seems to me important to show everyday life, to interfere as little as possible in what is happening. I show people I meet in my life. Sometimes it’s native people, sometimes casual passers-by. I’m not asking them to pose for me, I’m peeking. But of course every shot is my personal story. It is open to interpretation. I deliberately do not express my opinion.
