'Masks' is a portrait series dealing on identity.

We hide behind different masks that we use in different contexts. With social media, identity is no longer solid but a liquid abstraction. Photography has turned into a tool for its fiction. In the times of big data and automatic facial recognition, it's not who you are, it's what you show.

Through the polaroid, the image becomes an object, a link to the real world. Which is pierced and hidden under a simplified but aesthetically constructed mask.
