"Photography works as a space where I can be free to show myself and my life the way I want to show it. Coming from an often-closed traditional family, I'm wishing to re-read its pressures and play within its limits.

To go against those pleasures and entrapments of the middle class. 

To explore the woman body and sexuality inside this context or notice the unusual transformation of banal objects.

And after all, it's not a way to escape the past, but more a way to learn live within it.

Just on my own terms".
