The series of photographs "Family Portrait" was created between 2004 and 2006. In this work I explored questions, fantasies, and thoughts in the context of the family unit, especially with regard to motherhood. At the time, I was a young mother dealing with the expectations I had from myself. I was fascinated by the subject of motherhood, and at the same time, various feelings and fears related to the functioning of the family unit surfaced. In this series, I modeled with my toddler son and at the same time photographed friends, family members and other young mothers within the maternal role.
