The ongoing work 'Tales of Lipstick and Virtue' is a narration which deals with the topics of gender, class, self representation, racial prejudices, post-colonialism,
authenticity and pseudo luxury. Consisting of portraits of mostly women in Albania and figurative fake-stills out of the studio, the work uses methods of documentary, fashion and advertising photography. Due to the fluctuating combination of this methods and the multidisciplinary combination with other mediums like installation and sculpture, the body of work reflects the usage of photography.
Exploration of sexual and visual self-determination as empowerment aswell as the intersection of class and aesthetics and their (non-) eurocentric backgrounds are examined with a playfull use of colour, stylization and homour.
