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.
