In my photography, I investigate the boundaries and implicit codes of femininity and masculinity. In some photos the gender codes are depicted in an exaggerated manner and in other photos they become diffuse and indefinable. By means of photography, I question the perspective of contemporary Western norms about gender expression. At the same time, I ask the viewer the question to what extent we cling to the hetero normative bifurcation of a female-male construction. Within the prevailing visual culture I look for alternative forms of representation in gender expression. With this alternative gaze I aim to contribute to a transformation within the visual culture.
