THE BLACK & WHITE PROJECT | ICELAND
When I thought for the first time about creating a new body of work I started studying light and darkness. It is a wide subject which already inspires me for a long time.
During my research period, I was taught that light and darkness moves in waves and exists of very many small parts. This magical structure is normal to us but as a photographer searching for light and darkness it is an inspiration and reason to express it in a photo story.
Achievements: Winner COCA project 2020, finalist SIPA 2020, publications in L'oeil de la Photographie, PH museum, Bored Panda, Lensculture, ADF photo, Fashionista.
