The series of photographs SCREAM !! describes people cracking under the pressure induced by their desire to experience a perfect life.
Frustration and anxiety are born from the fear that we cannot control the outcome of our choices. In the series SCREAM!!. I take a look at this aspect of human nature and while I do not judge the scenario, I prefer to let the viewer put his own emotional colors onto the situations depicted. The idyllic imagery serves to lure the observer and to capture his interest, only to turn him into a witness of human despair: By the time the subject has reached the screaming stage, all control has been surrendered and all that is left is rage and frustration. Hope you like!
