According to Freud, the superego functions in the human psyche as a control instinct, the aim of which is to bring one’s own behavior into agreement with the ideal through self-observation.

© 2009 Edin Mustafic – Fig leaf & HEMP

My intention was to show the young adults from a different perspective. Their lives are shaped by inner struggles that take place every day. In this series I process the moments of these young people who seem to be losing their inner struggle. A break from the tight corset of expectations of family and society – including one’s own. The series shows emotional moments of weakness, fear, despair and resignation in black and white pictures.
