The calm after the storm 2021
The project The calm after the storm consists of abstract photographs and a text. Through conversations, thoughts and feelings, it reflects my emotions regarding my engagement with photography as my practice and questions its changing meaning in today's society. The photos are result of a search for the calm, the quiet, and for comfort.
