Me And My Nose

  • Denmark

Ziska Szemes is Swedish, but there's not many Swedes who believe this. For her nose says something else, and people consistently assume she's a foreigner. Armed with a camera, she moves onto the street and asks passers-by how they interpret her looks. She also goes to a plastic surgeon and gets prepared for the big nose job that will make sure that she in the future can be a Swede in peace. There is plenty of space for fun in Szemes's self-portrait, both frontal and in profile, so that her nose really gets the attention it deserves. Using her nose as a lever, she has accomplished a personal portrayal of the search for ones own identity.
