My work is autobiographical, although I have chosen not to tell my personal stories, but already existing ones, that I retell in my own way. The situations that attracting my attention are usually cases of tension, the moments between life and death, a bother situations. I believe that in the times of exhaustion, when the physical and limits are tested, the person can undergo an emotional and psychological transformation.
