SASKIA DE BRAUW

“This im­age is about long­ing. When my grand­mother’s house was for sale, I went back and took pic­tures. The house is a container of my child­hood mem­o­ries. It trav­els with me in my head. I wanted to cre­ate this feel­ing in an im­age so I cut small pup­pets out of paper and placed them, and pho­to­graphs of my­self, in­side the im­age of the empty room. The house is a sym­bol for the world or my mind and the fig­ures are as­pects of my­self. They have a de­sire to be­long, like I felt when I was a child in this house.” “The pic­ture re­flects my per­son­al­ity and how I am pri­vately. I try to en­joy ev­ery mo­ment, never for­get­ting where I’ve come from. Start­ing a modelling ca­reer at 27 and al­ready hav­ing a son has helped me to stay grounded in this crazy world of fash­ion.”
