PRESENTED BY ROYAL ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS :

My name is Anke Defossé, I am 23 years old, and born and raised in Antwerp. At the moment I am a 3rd bachelor photography student. In high school I choose to study human sciences which mostly means psychology and sociology. Through the years I found the medium of photography was giving me a platform to explore and visualize the human mind and its struggles.

Description

The image ‘Contagion’ is part of my latest project, The Soothing. This project is an introspect of my own psychological struggles that are evoked by real experiences or, in times of stress or dejection, are created by my own mind. These experiences have a high focus on the feeling of discomfort and repulsion. Through images I want to isolate certain examples of this universally human sensation for the public to feel (something) along.
