As much as our lives today have been disassociated from its surrounding environment, yet involuntarily, it is directly influenced by it.
The shots have captured the cruel moments of misery and fatigue, though are not expressive of a certain event in time or place. They explore the depths of the collective memory of a people whom have for generations suffered silently and tolerated much torment. The agony of which little by little has enwrapped their souls, much like a disease with which bit by bit disintegrates their body.
These pictures tell a tale of what is still left inside to say. Tales of which, others have no interest to listen to.
