As you can see, there is a slight change in the menu on my website. I can say I finished the series: 'Abandoned feelings'. It was quite a journey, where I explored my inner feelings. But the time has come to tackle a new chapter in my photography, time to move on to a new series called: 'Marianismo'.
In the series ‘Marianismo’ I explore the female gender role. 'Marianismo' is the phenomenon in Latin America in which women were either ‘saints or whores’. The ideal woman is seen as modest, virtuous, and sexually abstinent until marriage. By portraying myself in timeless environments I want to emphasize that -unlike there is an universal agreement on what a ‘real woman’ is like and how she should act- this is a constructed identity. The fact that my pictures are staged I want to denounce this and deconstruct the image of the ideal woman.
For now, the series is in progress but feel free to take a look. I hope you'll enjoy it.
