The changes that the female body goes through. The ephemerality of moments throughout our young age. Not recognizing myself as a feminine being has been a part of my juvenile life. Over the years my main body of work used to be about the female universe. I photographed women and learned about their history as a way of trying to find my own. These images are a part of "Map". An on going project that started a year ago and it is focused on portraying the vast and complex process of self-discovery and ripening. All shot with analog/expired film.
