My personal projects bring me to unexpected places without and within. They allow me to discover new perspectives on life, on womanhood, on identity and spirituality. 

The missing Code

The Missing Code is an artistic project which stems from the encounter between two personal itineraries, of the photographer Mona Simon and the writer and gender expert Cova Alvarez.

18 women, 8 Cambodian and 10 foreign, have participated and shared the stories of their life journeys.

The result is a collection of constructed self-portraits and poetic texts, inspired by the interviews that create a map of life pathways, choices and self-perceptions.

We will understand who woman are, when the world stops telling them who they should be.
Rosa Mayreder, (*1858-1938)
