Honorable Mention TIFA 2022 People / Self-Portrait


  • Photographer
    Mika Moret

I started taking self portraits over ten years ago as a way to discover myself as a person. Now I see photography as a means to understand my own existence. Photography helped me to be kinder to myself - I am now grateful for my body and what it allows me to do. The “Seeking” project started in 2020. I was struggling with the concept of my own identity during isolation. I felt so detached from the things that used to define me, which gave me a bittersweet feeling of freedom - if I was so far away from what I used to be, did that mean I could become a better version of myself then?
