Too many of us, freedom is self-evident. But is it? In a time of rapid technological advancement, independence and freedom might be one of many aspects that we as humans will loose along this progression. Nakedness was considered the ultimate vulnerability. Today it is a smartphone that reveals far more of the individual than a human with no clothes. I am all for advancement and also for the protection of an intransigent human right. The right to be free. "Exploring the idea of freedom" is the mindset behind my photos, inviting the viewer to provoke their thoughts in daily engagement about what it means to them to be free, in a seemingly unfree world."
