'hommage to the little red riding hood in all of us'

The series ‘the better to wolf you with’ explores the fear and anguish, but also the desire and curiosity, which lie within the story of ‘little red riding hood’ by the brothers Grimm.

The wish to enter the unknown is related to our desire. Desire involves a dialectic between desiring and being desired. In photographic terms: to see and to be seen. To achieve one's desire is to enter the place that frightens us. The pursuit of desire, to enter the unknown, however frightening it is, requires that we are willing to suffer the fear, anguish and guilt that come with it.

How do we make sense of the unknown, which makes us anxious?
