In My Room

Nationwide school closures discouraged contact with friends: the pandemic has hit the youth as much as any other generation. Yet we collectively fail to recognise the non-physical toll it takes on the youth that is growing up in unforeseeable times.

In My Room (2021) are portraits of various Dutch girls and boys in their mid-teens. The subjects allow us into their private rooms and offer us a brief but powerful glimpse into the space they have been confined to during this essential phase of their social and personal development.
