A Photo Art Project

Depicting an idea of an internal longing, a passage that evokes our inner search.

Saudade 08

This photo art series is based on an evolutionary poetic trail (a journey) of our inner clown* who curiously seeks life beyond boundaries and believes that “one finds oneself better in a contrary surrounding.”

* Tribalistic clown is a symbolic creation of our inner being exploring “self” in a contrary external setting, portraying an emotion most of us feels at some phase of our lives.
