A Photo Art Project

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

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.”

When we travel far away from “self” and get entangled in the worldly affairs, sometimes we forget or lose our inner essence, and this state emerges a desire within us to find our “self” back. Over the time this longing becomes a passage that evokes our inner search, in whatever culture or environment we (physically) move, we start discovering and understanding our inner center, and slowly learn to evolve our being.

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

Poetic Trails

Along the time, we dance and dissolve in the spaces.

Our purposefulness is in the purposelessness.

Everything is within and we’ll be nothing.
