In this project entitled “Under Skin”, Ana Ivanovska puts the focus on herself, her inner nature and various mental states and situations, referring to emotions and feelings in the period of quarantine during the Covid-19.
The influence by the whole pandemic situation reflects in her photography, having the elements of the masks and gloves multiplied, using an abstract manner to emphasize the fear and the limited freedom that appeared at the beginning of the expansion of the virus.
