The Other poses questions of identity and invites us to consider the limited possibilities of expressing one's true self. Limitations that we can feel due to society, our domestic situation, or even us. The modern world is still a difficult place for women, alas. Taking inspiration from the famous quote of French author Jean-Paul Sartre "Hell is other people", these staged photos explore our self-limiting beliefs and our desire to fit in, and the gap between our true selves and what we are expected to be. What if hell isn't actually other people - but the things we do to ourselves?
