This photograph is actually a part of a diptych, and joining those two ideas creates a message which is significant to me. If you except the other one, as it is, the first has a documentary character. It shows tops of the French Alps I captured on a holiday.
Although I live in a city, I feel mountains as my natural habitat. When it is not winter season, I try to manage in the city environment, to survive. The state of my mind is conditioned by factors which define the city. The need to distance and hide myself is a way to survive in the general chaos of society, which is inevitable in the process of degradation.
The first photograph was captured in the Alps, as I said, and the other one in Spain half a year later. I accidentally noticed a great similarity in the composition of the mountain peaks and marine, coastal rocks. The diptych is a portrait of my soul, all my thoughts and feelings brought by the circumstances in my life, and shown as freedom in contrast to rigidness-mountains in contrast to the city.
