On the eve of my 30th birthday I decided to answer the question: Where do I come from? I made a trip back to my childhood days, visiting the places that are dear to my heart. The resulting project takes form of discovery – while searching for autobiographical continuity I discovered that in places, where I once was a local, I am now a stranger. The main theme of this series is therefore searching for identity – during all night meditation sessions that I took, when exposing each image for several hours. All redundant or better yet unnecessary background details were carefully removed in the following post production process, as if by a surgical knife, leaving the remaining elements in disturbingly sterile form. The ultimate result leaves us with scenes removed from place and time, whose apparent banality can easily turn to terror, or perhaps nostalgia.
