Baby-sitter (2019-2020)

Being a baby-sitter is just a way to make images.

The title refers to the position from which I took and collected these photographs of my surroundings during a few months in 2019 while being a new-comer in Sweden and facing the necessity to find a “brödjobb” - a Swedish term describing the act of securing one’s economic autonomy for an artist or cultural actor.

The baby-sitter might just as well be one of the unknown protagonists in the series as it develops itself in a discontinuous narration intuitively built among the pictures through the relations that may occur between them.
Baby-sitter” is filled with thresholds and stumbles among the familiar, the act of looking and representation.  

The meaning emerging from the created associations could be compared to the exercise of writing intuitively and contributes to explore photography as a medium of combination, in a context of profusion.
