The series ‚little by little‘ is an ongoing project which, in general terms, investigates the phase in between a girl’s childhood and adolescence.
There is still a strong feeling of innocence about girls this age, they are not yet ready to enter the adolescent world with its make-up, cellphones, and, of course, boys; but they are definitely aware of the impact their presence already has.
This specific time is characterized by self-discovery, role-playing, vulnerability, impatience, challenging the adult world, and a sense of immortality.
On a more personal level, this project is also about this particular girl, who is growing up amongst four brothers and is always being scrutinized by them. The male gaze is something that is ubiquitous for her.
So this series is also about her, fighting for her ways, every day, in a male-dominated world.
The images, laden with anticipation and curiosity, highlight the fragility as well as the temporal and finite nature of this phase – soon enough, a child will grow up and leave the nest.
