Maja Planinac

Seek me as I hide

My images are formed by challenge of growing up in Serbia and struggling to create a new life in the United States. I tell my unique story through surrealist images that aim to simultaneously express deeply complex and painful emotions while also being playful. My photos are an acutely honest way of displaying human imperfections. Doing so feels more naked than actually showing myself without clothing. The risk of being exposed, for me, is less dangerous than hiding these experiences which are so universal.
