Born in a small town close to Vienna, Austria, 1991. After graduating from high school she
completed a training as a hair and makeup artist in Vienna. While working as a freelance makeup artist for several years, she finished her undergraduate studies at the Faculty of East Asian Studies at the University of Vienna in 2016. She is currently a D.F.A candidate at Kyoto University of the Arts, using wet plate collodion photography as an extension of her exploration of the human unconscious mind. My work is the result of the effort to gain a deeper understanding of other human beings and to unveil unconscious aspects of the human mind.
Many of my projects are collaborative, as I try almost like an actor to expand my own awareness by absorbing other people’s experiences. Therefore, the mask has been a recurring motif in my work. While some of my work is strongly influenced by my experiences as a makeup artist, I have expressed masks through various kinds of media like projection mapping and video installations.
To me, masks are not only a mere tool for masquerade but a means to expose something through the concealment of something else. This contradictory essence of masks has led me to use them as a metaphor for the natural interconnectivity between people and the elusiveness of the self. Working with the wet plate collodion process has created an opportunity to reflect on these issues in a completely new way, and to further explore the possibilities of expressing masks through photography.

His images are a mixture of documentary and cinematographic style that look like fragments chosen from a broader vision as if they were dreamlike situations regarding feelings where the importance are the facial expressions, spaces, and textures, representing with his shots a state of mind and revealing the projection before his own characters, many of them based on film or animation.
His main work is Portraits and he is interested in the surreal and imaginary world but with influence in his reality which is his place of origin “Guatemala and Latin America”.

” kizuki no shirushi”
I came across ‘’ hamburger button’’ (the button in websites and apps that typically opens up into a side menu or navigation drawer) when I’m using my phone. And I found that is so cool such a simple design especially if I get notifications.
Then “ three lines and one circle ‘’ turned into a big inspiration to make artworks.
So what I did in this’ ‘ kizuki no shirushi ’’series is I took photos when I stumbled upon situations that consisted of ‘’ three lines and one circle” in every life.
It was so interesting to find myself that I’m always seeking `” three lines and one circle “ in daily life pretty unconsciously. I’m guessing it’s kind of like color bath effects *. I was like I can’t take to not take a photo when I saw the situations that I mentioned.
If I talk about a bit more detail, I normally choose cameras depending on what I want to express. The most of photography in this series is taken by I phone. because I didn’t bring out the cameras and I thought it is enough to express.
Besides that, this series is exhibited in Tokyo, Aoyama. It was my 2nd exhibition.
*psychological term which describes “if you focus on certain color(or things), that color sticks to your mind, and you unconsciously keep paying attention to that color around you after that.
