Aphrodite's Rock / Cyprus / 15.08.2020
The bright yellow ball with a mane of red hair is slowly hiding behind the horizon. From the foam emerges the goddess of love and beauty, flowers, gardens and spring. Aphrodite. Aphrodite Urania (heavenly), a symbol of pure, spiritual and sensual love, or Aphrodite Pandemos (common), a symbol of sex, lust and procreation. Beautiful and vulgar, sensual and soulful. A rose and a lily. Tossing up waves, the sea recites tales of old. We listen. We watch. Tomorrow too, there will be the birth of East and West.
Wiórek / Poland / 30.07.2020
Pandemic. The “never-ending journey” into the garden and the surrounding reality. We have discovered a life that goes on parallel to ours right next to us. At our fingertips, to make us stop for a moment. I feel as if we’re on another planet and we’re watching everything through a telescope. I’m learning to spot signals and read information hidden in the galaxy of the garden. In scents, in symbols, in the heart, in vases and on plates. Planet Lily – beautiful, fragrant and clean. Tasty. Divine and earthly.
Each photograph used during the journey stops being luggage, changes its destiny, takes on a new life. It creates a unique travel sack with a story in the background. Always just one. One shot, one sack. Luggage (no excess)
