Cold Case

Is there a link between shyness and lack of self-confidence?

Is acting out in the background cowardly?

When there are doubts and struggles, is this suspicious?

Not seldom have I personally been confronted with such allegations. When the various claims strike me, my mind fills with a flood of images.

There are times when I am very to myself and don’t know how to navigate that. I aim to mirror many of these feelings in my photographs.

Self-portraiture allows me to trace my thoughts and ideas, and theories in my head and not hide or distrust them.
