I can save loneliness

The series I can save loneliness is about human and object relationships with space. To create the feeling of loneliness, I used many combinations of shots to understand how they work together. I asked myself how to create that blue feeling in my head, and how to take the process further and catch a range of loneliness. Every diptych features its own relationship, and together they tell the whole story. In this searching process, I had just one space to look through – the eye of the camera. From this position, I strongly believe loneliness can be saved in an image.
