Maybe, Happiness Is… (ongoing)

Photography, Diary

In the project, I am preoccupied with the questions: What does happiness mean? What is the emblem of uttermost freedom? Can we even describe it in words or perhaps through photography?
It started in May 2022 when I did a radical decision to move out of my studio in the Hague without necessarily knowing the reason behind it. I just knew that I didn’t feel happy. I moved to Amsterdam instead and stayed at 21 places from the period of June till November. These circumstances enabled me to open myself to novel energies and encounters. Let’s say affective encounters with strangers, pure moments…
The purpose of this project is deep self-reflection – to allow me to look at myself better, with increasing truth while hoping that this deeply personal narrative can also resonate universally.
