I feel honored to see my portrait selected by Katerina Stathopoulou – curator at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
“Ulla’s portrait of a sex worker in Ghana – part of her long-term documentary project exploring prostitution across Africa and Europe – is raw and intimate, imperfect and full of character. The woman’s expression is so absorbing – there’s both a confidence and vulnerability; Ulla draws out so much with so little. Of course there’s an obvious innuendo with the banana, but it’s done so naturally and with such sincerity that it works – heightening the theme rather than undermining it. It’s a fantastic portrait – creative, genuine and powerful.”
