In the past few weeks while editing my photos, been thinking to myself why I was drawn to making these images. I don’t know what to make out of it, but, I don’t remember feeling alone in the space.
Maybe the dark atmosphere, with a hint of fear—of desperately clinging to fantasy because the real world is a scary and unfair, with the fear of everything you ever cherish will vanish at some point.
Maybe this is how I interpret ‘Purgatory’, a space neither heaven nor hell.
