"I"


As I began thinking where to start, where to focus on, how to frame and when to click, something tore at me deep inside my head. I drowned myself in the mists of confusion that surrounded my thoughts. The globe is warming up, the consequences of which will inevitably surface on the land on which I live, and I began searching for reasons. From within the boundaries of my comfort zone, I pointed my lens toward the ‘Other’, to find factors responsible for breaking the balance and harmony of nature which led to the changing climate. Is it because of the industries? Or the insane pace of so-called developments? Wars? The plague of greed, melting ice, deforestation? Or is it “I” who contribute towards the destruction of my own existence? Hence, “I” turned “My” camera towards myself, shedding light on a hidden icon that we carry secretly within each of us. “I”, who is archetypal and metaphoric. “I”, who wants to have the freedom to consume, to have power and wealth, to be one with my own indulgence. “I”, who wants to separate the self from nature so as to be distinctive and superior, only to transform everything into mine, and mine alone.
