Life itself is the image
I am interested in spiritual matters. I am interested in the nature of my feelings.
My personal photographic project: “ Imaginary voyage” is mainly using a metaphorical
method and ambiguous, poetic way to express the natural personal desires and drifts,
through engaging processes that place these desires into the natural world. It follows its own
My wish is to give viewers time to rethink the act of seeing, and to see the ambiguity within
the deceptively simple act of “seeing things as they are.”
The series evolves into different sequential elements , which are water, watercolor, painted
petals, myself and myself portrayed in the photos drifting in the water world.
The project focuses on my self-awareness, self identity and belonging. Concerns for personal
emotions, freedom and the liberation of the inner self.
I shot what I feel and I shot my own self-portrait, wrote down why I took it and what I felt in
doing it…. Sometimes what I want to tell is not obvious, and other times the viewer is left
with his own interpretation.
If its not there, we write it down.
If its not there, we hand it over to our imagination.
I exist in my dream
Myself through a voyage… the colors, the water
the fragments of petals…
I find myself in the water in the air
Can you see me
Can you feel I exist
Are we related…
I will follow the wake in the air, the fragrant wave
from petals, the trail on the water, the mirage in
the dark nights…
I wish to hunt myself down, to struggle with
Myself after a voyage
Myself in an illusion
Myself in reality
Myself through double layers
Myself through the fluid water
Myself as seen through your eyes, your
Who I really am and who I am supposed to be.
