Work in process…
It is good to have many personae, to make collections, sew up several, collect them as we go along in life. As we become older, with such a collection at our behest, we find we can portray any aspect of self most anytime we wish. However, at some pint, most particularly as one grows into and past mid-life and on into old age, one’s personas shift and meld in mysterious ways. Eventually, there is a kind of ”melt down”, a loss of personae complete, thereby revealing what would, in its greatest light, be called ”the true self”.

Home Alone is my project about the plural self and identity. I do not consider these pictures as selfportrais, even if pictures are taken in my home in Helsinki and I am the model in all pictures.
