invited guest: Nadia Baram (part one)

Nadia Baram sent me an excellent collection of pictures for her guest appearance on the F Blog. In these pictures I am struck by the way this young woman portrays men of all ages. The photos are from China and Mexico and...yes, this is such refreshing work! Can´t wait for part two./Ulf

The Trouble with Being Two
My relationship with photography has always been somewhat of a contradiction. Photography has been for me, a means of escape and at the same time a confrontation with my solitude. I have taken refuge amongst the unknown to feel less visible in my condition as a 'stranger', thinking that by making it obvious, I would need less of an explanation.

These photographs are for me a collection of these
attempts to escape, moments of silence in which i run into myself, sometimes frail and timid, other times, brave and shameless.
