"Between Walls the back wings of the hospital where nothing will grow lie cinders in which shine the broken pieces of a green bottle" – William Carlos Williams
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage. After my recent surgeries, I thought of the concept of kintsugi as a perfect technique to mend my body and soul and overcome the feeling of loss. This work allowed me to accept my precious scars which I was left with and treat each of them as a unique break that soon would be filled. The images correspond with each other in a similar way to our body and being. It is a never-ending conversation: light – dark, day – night, shapes, lines, textures and spots, deep breaths, in and out, like the curtain and the wind. Revolving around the topic of human body and skin, Kintsugi is a black and white photography journey through the process of healing and searching of the essence of resilience.
