Detailed self portraits celebrate the spirit of Christmas: Alice in Wonderland meets the Nutcracker. (A fictional family portrait)
This year, I felt the heartbreaking urge to drown myself in a kitschy fairytale-and-all-cliche christmas mood: heavy red-golden brokat ornaments, oceans of candles and my favorite christmas fairytales… to stand my ground (again).
The road to happiness is bumpy, but I built myself a rocket and am now aiming for the lucky star!
I gave up my waiting spot in the ‘how can I make it happen?’ help desk line.
Since 2011 I’ve been busy with studying, internships in advertising agencies and in the film set production sector. I traveled a lot through European cities and soaked myself with culture in Berlin. Developed my portfolio every waking second.
I went through heaven and hell, a lot of times. For years I felt like I can’t accomplish anything and like I can’t belong to anyone (creatively speaking). Until I stumbled upon the right mentors to establish my visual voice.
Point is: you can make it, if you start to believe in yourself.
