Self-Portraits by Joana Betzner
Photography helps me find a way to express what I cannot do with words. It is for this reason that it is difficult for me talk about my work. I started taking photographs of myself, my friends and the things that surrounded my life when I bought my first camera as a teenager. Joanna Sassen
I began photographing what moved me and what I felt was beautiful. I wasn’t sure what I was doing, but it became a necessity for me to capture these images.
Photography has been a tool for me to understand myself, and the world around me, translating my sometimes chaotic feelings into an image.
I’m Joana Betzner from Barcelona.
As art, cinema has also been very important to me. The different ways of seeing the world of many film directors, have helped me to recognize myself in their perception of life and that’s why I would love to make films some day.
