The photographer romanticises love disappointments, combining on her collages scanned book pages from her favorite romantic novels, Wuthering Heights, Red and Black, Anyegin and The Sorrows of Young Werther, with handwritten texts of fragments of flattering or poignant, sometimes even vulgar text messages from ex-boyfriends, lovers and Tinder dates. The combination of these two contrasts the real and the desired love.

Relationships today are changing, often stepping outside the conventional norms and becoming more complex. This brings many benefits and liberation, but it is also difficult to navigate in this newer system sometimes. Combining self-portraits with the texts has become a kind of therapeutic process.
