About the Photograph:

“I have been documenting the life of women in Central Europe since 2002. I began as a student, because I wanted to find answers to my personal questions. I needed to deal with the fact that I am a woman and through my work I was searching for what it is to be a woman in Slovak society. Eastern European societies have undergone massive transformations in the past few years. Woman are taking examples from and idealizing western ways of life. Traditions are disappearing and intergenerational conflict is inevitable. The focus of life is becoming less immediate and increasingly aspirant.”
