About

My work focuses on social structures in the contemporary world where identity gets exploited through discrimination, based on gender, race or religious preferences. Here, stereotypical perspectives are discussed or questioned from the realm of personal experience. The intention is to rebel against the concept of forcefully identifying a person in a given set of definitions where individuality is dumbed down.
