LGBTI+ keeps me interested. It tells a lot about being human. The theme came to this image when I started swapping body parts to see what it did to the image. In the result I see someone who overcomes the obstacles in life by being true to himself. Which has become stronger as a result and carries the previous forms with it.

An ode to musing through an image. Relaxation and quietly absorbed in thought, the way to get back to yourself. An essential factor for the learning human. Returning to what you were and allowing new impressions to grow on you. There is an inner movement in the standstill. I think there is something deliciously intrusive in this work. You recognize it when you are comfortable with it. This is the home of poetry.

It fascinates me that the head of what we call a suicide bomber, the head is usually found quite unscathed. The heads in my work are also not attached to a body. I suspect that existential displeasure was the motivation for their attack. In this image, this grief came together with that of the relatives. You see the stress and uncertainty of the consequences it will bring.
