In her creation process, Kroll dismantles and creates visual worlds, she reassembles and builds new realisms. One of her images include selected parts taken from over hundreds of photos, taken at different times, and places; Thereby Kroll disconnects the supposedly ‘photographic image’ from any standard anchors in time and space. In an interview with Haaretz News, Kroll stated;

In my work, I turn things upside down: If the real photos originate in a fake situation [i.e., are staged], I choose to make the fake photos seem real − in other words, to be faithful to the complexity of life.”

This speaks directly with the themes of Kroll’s work and the illusiveness of normality. She is interested in the inherent contradiction in the need to belong to a social structure, but being simultaneously repulsed by it. She creates uncanny photomontages that are invented realities and feeds off the tension and dissonance created by staging mundane moments in life.
