My extreme light sensitivity affects my day to day activities.


This very bright original oil painting tries to communicate that. Photophobia is the name of the light sensitivity condition I have. This big word is to describe the huge discomfort I feel in bright light. It is defiantly not a fear from light, but light can be very challenging on a daily basis. My (very dark and red’ish) sunglasses are always at my side. I can NOT go outside without them, even if it is cloudy, rainy or right after sunset. I wear them also indoors when the room is bright or if I look outside the window. However, I prefer a sunny day because it makes me feel happy, even that I have to make more effort to get by. All the outdoor activities are just more tiring...


In the past I was insecure in regards to my blinking and my poor day site, for example when I encountered new people who didn’t know my background and assumed I was tired or that something was wrong with me, or at management meetings at work where I didn’t want them to feel that I don’t respect them while I was wearing my glasses in the office.

Now, even though I accept who I am and try not to care about what people think about me, I still sometimes feel uncomfortable walking in a bright room full of people without my sunglasses.


With my glasses on, at a dark room or at night time, you would never know that something is wrong with my vision, unless you call me from a distance and then I can’t locate you, or if you give me the menu to read and most of the time it is too small for me. I feel lucky for looking like I have no problem, just because it means that my vision is not THAT bad – it is all about proportion in life…


In this painting I wanted to show the glare I feel from light, and that is why it is all in very light colors. A hat is a very useful item when the sun is shining!


I use oil paint straight from the tube and mix it with whites to create the shades.


This beautiful female portrait is based on a friend’s photo of a fashion model
