IN ABSENCE OF THE SUN




On my birthday, I lost someone dear to me.

The sadness that came with it, resulted in a vicious circle of longing. Because of this I felt disconnected, wandering around in my thoughts and memories.

'In Absence Of The Sun' is a visual catalog that revolves around my experience with loss. I question the level in which I hold on to all the losses of my loved ones and use it to create images that explore this sentiment. Each image is reflecting a new association of the absence of someone dear to me.

In this project, I use photography as a tool to navigate my way trough the stages of letting go and trying to find comfort in solitude.
