A woman is never more of an individual than in her response to the conformity of motherhood. Hidden Woman is a project based on my personal observations and reflections on the role of motherhood in a woman's life. My portraits explore the concept of emotional identity and how self-expression and behaviour can communicate internal concerns. This is a visualization of the belief that in the moment of becoming a mother, a woman can experience a loss in the 'power of autonomy', which can lead her to relying on the daughter as a channel through which she can convey and express her own individuality. Engaging with a complex mother-daughter relationship, my work leans towards an exploration of the essence of their emotional bond.
