Because of my fears and anxiety I feel I am locked into myself. I try to get out, but sometimes I am hiding rather. In my series, I worked with the polaroid technique, because the image is already pre-framed, which I can cross. For the maximalism of my compulsion - which in many cases, manifested in an infinite retouching in relation to digital images - the finality and contingency of the polaroid also means reassurance, I can not modify the image itself, but I can process it manually in any way afterwards.
