Kintsugi





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, dots 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 for the essence of resilience.
