IN RELATION TO NOTHINGNESS
The feeling of fear is intimate, overwhelming and volatile. Photographed during nighttime by the use of flashlights, this work approaches the feeling of fear in narrative symbols like solitude, decay and darkness. It is the subtle, blurred and irrational kind of fear I'm particularly interested in. Especially these supposedly intimate associations, as personal as they might feel, are heavily influenced by a social and medial narrative. Fear is not only a personal state of mind, it's a characteristic of society.
