This work aims to emphasize how insignificant we think other people’s lives can be and how self focused humans are by habit. In the beginning, we feel superior and/or unaware of recognizing the chaotic and meaningless shiftings of life. As we progress, we begin to sense that we also belong to a natural scheme or grand design.
Later, we realize how suffocating these expectations can be, framed in a logical and predefined pattern, a condition from which we want to escape. Becoming a flying observer is a way to wisdom and positive detachment from human individualistic motivation.
These photographs were purposely put into squares to cause a sense of voyeurism and restraint. Like looking through a keyhole the viewers may only see one focal point and lose their peripheral vision.
