Rødbro focuses in her work on themes such as solitude and isolation. In her earlier project Fuck you kiss me (2008) she portrayed young people in desolate Greenland, an environment where isolation is unavoidable and time seems to stand still. There she photographed the shy, young inhabitants against an icy backdrop. In Texas Rødbro has captured youngsters in their pre-adolescent phase, a period in which uneasiness and insecurity are key issues. In search of intimacy and identity, these young people spend their days doing little more than visiting each other, hanging around together and falling in love.
In addition to her own work, Rødbro has made a selection of photos from MySpace, where one of Rødbro’s subjects has been photographed by her friends. Lone Stars combines portraits, still lifes and landscapes, shot in a natural style that is distinctive as well as personal. The exhibition consists of approximately forty colour and black-and-white photos and a video work.
