The Girl With The Mousy Hair

The project is an artistic collaboration between me and Zuzanna, a young girl, daughter of an old friend of mine. Not only did Zuzanna model in the shoot, but she also partly styled herself and did her own makeup. She is also the author of the photographs of her house and its surroundings. Coupled with snippets of correspondence between me and her, the series aimed at exploring the world of a young girl and letting her vision drive the process forward. Loosely inspired by David Bowie iconic stylistic choices, and being Zuzanna herself a big fan of him, the imagery obtained reflected how boundaries can be fluid – especially if in the mind of an 8-year-old.
