Imaginary Voyage




“Imaginary Voyage”

Life itself is the image



I am interested in spiritual matters. I am interested in the nature of my feelings.

My personal photographic project: “ Imaginary voyage” is mainly using a metaphorical

method and ambiguous, poetic way to express the natural personal desires and drifts,

through engaging processes that place these desires into the natural world. It follows its own

dreamlike logic.

My wish is to give viewers time to rethink the act of seeing, and to see the ambiguity within

the deceptively simple act of “seeing things as they are.”


The series evolves into different sequential elements , which are water, watercolor, painted

petals, myself and myself portrayed in the photos drifting in the water world.

The project focuses on my self-awareness, self identity and belonging. Concerns for personal

emotions, freedom and the liberation of the inner self.

I shot what I feel and I shot my own self-portrait, wrote down why I took it and what I felt in

doing it…. Sometimes what I want to tell is not obvious, and other times the viewer is left

with his own interpretation.





If its not there, we write it down.

If its not there, we hand it over to our imagination.





I exist in my dream

Myself through a voyage… the colors, the water

the fragments of petals…25




I find myself in the water in the air

Can you see me

Can you feel I exist

Are we related…



I will follow the wake in the air, the fragrant wave

from petals, the trail on the water, the mirage in

the dark nights…


I wish to hunt myself down, to struggle with






Myself after a voyage

Myself in an illusion

Myself in reality

Myself through double layers

Myself through the fluid water

Myself as seen through your eyes, your         i28


Who I really am and who I am supposed to be.

Deconstruction woman (She-‘Self ‘, She-‘Other’)


She- Self  She- Other


Life beyond the self.

It’s a Self-portraiture, photographic self-performance about female subject and an artistic practice.




My representation of constructed self through bodily gestures and shifting positions performed in front of the camera, represent desires and reflections about women. I try to assemble and stage my subjects and moods through images. My body is used as material and medium for this photographic work. The staged performance of this work balances the physical presence of my body referring to more imaginative ways in which I can record the inner self.





Deconstruct mode of performative self-imaging that opens up an abstract way of thinking about woman, in terms of constructed fantasies and the sexually identified subject. It also could explore notions of self-identity.
