empty nest

Whenever there is a chance, I tend to depict solitude as a kind of meditational ritual. It has become increasingly more difficult for me to retreat or to put myself in a moment of reflection and self analysis.


Getting to photograph these moments in the present makes itself somehow important, since it allows me to see myself in connection with my subject in a subconscious level. Seeing myself in my subjects has always been awkward and exciting. I describe this approach as 'self voyeurism' because I consider these images to be fragments of my own personal diary, which expose my intimacy in subjective and non-linear way.
