Can I?
Move closer

Can I almost touch?

Your skin

And underneath

Can I question?

Your beliefs

And mine

Can I go a different way?

Or maybe even choose an opposite path

Can I?

But, stay

Stay close

Till we find what is worthwhile
In the short film ‘Schroom’ the photographer went back to the environment where she grew up. Through conversations with significant others she tries to find a position regarding the body, sexuality and how christian morality makes this quest harder and more valuable at the same time, but also brings along doubt, guilt and shame. The film is an authentic search for self definition, an inner coming-of-age reflected by women around her. The film is slow and far from sensation or controversy, it is a quiet meditation on the journey of how one can relate to sexuality and the body.
