Distance, 2018 
– Part of the Intimacy series –

Almost every human in today's world experiences some kind of self-objectification. Especially females are prone to internalise an objectifying gaze due to prevalent narratives of beauty. Hence, » Distance « aims to record how social meanings mediate individuals a distant body perspective and lead to a separation from sensual perception. It displays visually the degree in which people develop a blurred mental image of the physical self that fluctuates, more or less rapidly according to social contexts, between centres of attention and scale of focus (from ultra-close to super-far). Additionally, the photographs also try to challenge the mentioned phenomenon, by explicitly emphasising acceptance of the human body, to inspire its embracement as an integral part of the self and to synchronise it again with the first-person.
