Purity is the leading work in ‘Songs for soprano’, a photo essay on the life and times of Anna Witsen. It tells the story of an aristocratic young woman with impossible singing ambitions, depressions and an unrequited love at the end of the 19th century. The dogmatic ideas about the position of women and how to fulfill that role in that time meant for a woman of Anna’s position that she should not be who she wanted to be: a professional soprano singer.
By telling Anna’s story, I hope to draw attention to the theme of gender equality. After all, equal rights and opportunities for everyone are essential for development, prosperity and peace I think. Please take a look at the whole photo essay ‘Songs for soprano’ and download the artist statement.
