"It is not so much a document of particular events or a nostalgic inquiring into the past, while trying to get rid of contradictory feelings. It’s a meditation on the foggy perceptions that are leaving traces on the path of our life. These images are intentionally difficult to categorize. The indistinct scenes that appear before us are coming from a trail of memories, and family’s tales, intertwined with the photographer’s own wondering. It is an exploration into the dreams and fears. The book connects place and memory, disconnected from the passage of time. It isn’t about the past or the future, or about the present, but still it is a closely woven tale of history and identity."
