'Barbara' is an ongoing project which I started in January of 2021. Barbara is my alter ego, a woman with her passions, secrets, dreams, and insecurities. Her surreal world keeps dragging me in and sometimes unexplainable happen. With the intention of working on the project for a year, I attempted to do at least one shoot per month. Through Barbara I tried to perceive things I didn't fully understand. Throughout the months, Barbara grew and altered, becoming a more personal figure to me. Sometimes I felt like I was hiding behind her mask, envisioning myself as someone else in certain respects and often I simply immersed myself in her character and used dressing up as a form of escapism. It's as if I am in a theatre, where I am the writer, director, actor and costume designer, as well as a character who expresses and lives through genuine feelings.
