Smoking birds by Moena Weiss is a collection of portraits which depict an individual's transformation process. The uniqueness of the individual in this process is displayed through the progression of the photos in the series. Moena conveys the inherent beauty in the diverse human experience. She wants the subjects of her portraits to see what she sees through the lens of her camera when looking at their image. The artist is fascinated by the different facets of humanity and how photography can capture a person’s way of existing, moving, feeling. To share this process while taking pictures is one of the most beautiful things for her, because in the end we all want to be seen by others as we are.
Moena Joy - Dada Weiss is a Berlin-based photographer. With a background in psychology, Moena is fascinated with documenting the human environment and exploring the encounter between the camera and people she photographs. She works a lot with portraiture; for her, a portrait of a person holds tremendous vulnerability and intimacy between the photographer and their subject and thus establishes a special form of relationship.
