Marja Saleva - He is so obsessed with me


Self published 2013

He is so obsessed with me is a personal story about a single woman around her forties. The ongoing project started in 2011. The photos are reflections of feelings and experiences. They show the pleasure and the pain, the mess and the glitter.

The work plays with the real and the imagined. The photos are originally documentary, whereas the title character, the “He”, is imaginary. The work is based on the flow of images, repetition and fragmented stories.

The main character and her daily actions form the frame for the book. The book begins intimately, showing an extremely private act.
