These self-portraits come from a series called “Mood", devoted to the diversity and complexity of human nature. It is an attempt to look in the dark depths of one’s soul and to find an answer to the question whether my existence here and now is sufficient and complete to make me alive and visible. We continuously fight with our doubts about happiness and self-acceptance. What influence do we have on ourselves and on others? Is the world too complicated to make us feel that we still exist today? Maybe we, as human beings, make this world too difficult by ourselves? I believe we get lost progressively and disappear as humans, together with our emotions.
The effect on the photographs was obtained with a single exposure of each image.
