A first look at everything.
“Fanta in front of things” is a photographic essay about the beginning of my daughter Fanta's life. With irony and humor we visit places all new to her, and tell the story of her very first experiences and interactions with society.
On a second level, the series is my personal reflection about the idiosyncrasy in the ordinary and occasionally extraordinary scenes we have come to take for granted. Fanta’s naive eyes and expressions highlight the marvel and strangeness of it all, and come with an honesty that is in stark contrast to the classic baby portraits embossed with soft filters and perfect lighting that we are used to.
“Fanta in front of things” is a project in progress that will continue to follow the first years of her life.
