At the heart of the series lies a technique that redefines the boundaries of traditional photography.
With my broken Polaroid camera used as a camera obscura, I capture portraits directly on the photo paper. It happens In a dark room where a person sits in front of the camera and has to light up the lamp for about a minute as the light sensitivity of the photo paper is not high, and therefore they have to sit still for a minute. The duration of the exposure morphs into a shared moment of sincerity between the artist and the subject.
Before we start shooting I explain the concept and afterward, the person is asked to write down on the print the answer to the question - What worries you? – the result is a gallery of visual diaries, a compelling fusion of photography and personal narrative.
