Facing pressure 

Personal project 

We are living in a demanding society, characterized by big pressure to succeed. 
Starting from this perspective and fascinated by how people show off visual signs of stress, focus, exhaustion etc. I decided to start a series of portraits of University students during their exams, as a metaphor for our larger society, in which many people are dealing with (an overload of ) stress and are searching for balance in their lives. 

The images have been made with generous support of the Antwerp University and the students who agreed to model for me. Images from an ongoing series started in 2016.
