Sevenfold: The Life of A Woman
The photo series ‘SEVENFOLD: the life of a woman’ is based on the concept of archetypes. There are seven goddesses in Greek mythology who represent more or less all women: Artemis, Athena, Hestia, Hera, Demeter, Persephone and Aphrodite. In myths about the Greek goddesses, every goddess has different qualities and values. As a whole, they form the entire panorama of human attributes - including competitiveness and intelligence. In the modern world too, the qualities and values of the goddesses are represented in every woman and these archetypes can help to find the authentic "self".
