    “I would like to do a photomontage with one person posing, one as a man, and one as a woman. The same person for both. And the ambiguity between which one is the “real” one. …”

    “…Somehow he really enjoyed to dress as a woman, so I think it could be interesting to see how the guys (not homo and not trans) reacts/feels as a woman.”

  5. Ending the straight world order

    I’ve been playing with motifs from two different queer communities: Drag queens - hyper-feminine, and the BSDM-bear community - hyper-masculine. I wanted to see what effects mixing different aspects of both communities would have. I also experimented with the aesthetics of commercial/ad photography, photo-journalism, and editorial; together with the pose and mannerisms of the model to confuse the viewer as to the gender of the subject.”

  13. Ending the straight world order

    We would like to show something that fight, challenges and questions “the straight world order”.
    With the straight world order is meant, the society we all live in, a society where heterosexuality
    is the norm, where specific gender roles are dragged down over everybody. The world is leaded
    mostly by powerful straight men, much of the crimes are committed by straight men and men
    cause many all of the world’s largest problems. It’s a world where you probably will get oppressed
    if you don’t oppress.

  15. Urbanized: Berlin!

    Berlin is actually a very young city, and there are a lot of places in the city that are unoccupied.

    It is normal to find houses next to an expanse. 

    It’s also normal to see cranes and town cars in almost every street.

    Berlin is growing faster and faster and we have to be part of this memorable Revolution.

    Because when our cities are changing, we are changing too.

  19. Urbanized: Paris!

    Stay the Different.

    is the experimental video capturing the stories of normal people who live in such city over some period of time.

    Before the shooting, I would ask them many questions to grab the essential personality of who they are and to detect the change inside them that have been caused by two cities, their hometown and in this case, Paris. Has Paris changed them into another completely different person? Or Paris has not affected anything on them at all? It is the revolution in an individual level based on an such an ordinary life. I believe that each city has unique vibe and energy that can drive its inhabitants to be or to do something different. Some might disagree and want to contradict such belief. That is the reason why I want to explore the stories behind these changes (or these non-changes if there are none). Berlin is the next city. Living here and having been familiar to it myself, leaves so many windows for me to research and to find many good sources to work on. And I do hope very much that the contents that I will prospectively create from Berlin can exemplify the great material of Revolution.
