THE VISIT

Mariam experienced her beard growing in her face since she was 14. From then on she has been fighting against it, shaving it, hiding it. Until she turned 30 and decided to accept it. Mariam is from Germany and has a son now getting into his twenties. These images were taken in occasion of her first visit to Denmark, where we met. The visit is a project about the self as the other and the construction of stereotypical narratives.
