Borderland is an ongoing project deeply rooted in my personal history. The images comprise my obsession with the boundaries between reality and imaginary, present experience and memory, isolation and belonging. I use both fiction and nonfiction as themes in my work to rebuild my self-awareness by trying to represent a version of homeland, as well as finding comfort through reconnection to the past. For me, Borderland is an intimate work of remembrance, tenderness and self-consolation.
