About

Jelena Bondt is a fashion and costume designer with a big interest in film and photography. She often bases her work on a certain thought, feeling or emotion, on a fear (fear of death, fear of loss, fear of loneliness, fear of growing up) or the feeling of wanting to keep things close by collecting or hoarding.

She practices photography and makes films based on a lot of these same concepts.
