Anima is an ongoing photographic series that emerged from my interest in revealing and exploring the female identity, more specifically the aspects that we hide. By soliciting models through the Internet I am able to find women that are willing to disclose their most inner desires, fantasies and apprehensions to a stranger. My intention is to give these women a possibility to materialize such desire by performing for the camera without being judged. It becomes a mutual experience, through the collaboration that arises between model and photographer. The Latin word Anima signifies female soul, spirit in general and references the creative aspect of the human mind.
