HeartCore


Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Love, the most brutal and the most beautiful feeling, is an eternal mystery. ‚HeartCore‘ is a series of conceptual self-portraits and portraits of my ex-partner, illustrating the range of ambiguous emotions I experienced in our relationship: from happiness to sadness, passion to rejection, tenderness to aggression. ‘HeartCore‘ is a visual love diary that helped me to forgive, heal, let go of the past, and move on.
