Unsubstantiated claims of bizarre behaviour that are difficult to prove or disprove

As part of an ongoing examination of her surroundings, Sylvana's photography seeks out new experiences and individuals in the search for something meaningful and then exploits that moment through documentation and presentation. Her work focuses on the connections these moments have with the subject, their surroundings and the unifying effect of shared experiences.
