Spirit of Park Royal
Commisioned by Garden Studios, we conceived "Spirit of Park Royal" project as a tribute to the concepts of community and connection.
"Sorry, but you are not allowed to smile," I told them as they posed in front of my camera. At that moment, a sense of confusion descended into the space. A smile is usually a mask. And we all love masks. But I wanted to go slightly deeper, and create an atmosphere where we could uncover something more. Instead of a smile, I invited them to share with me a feeling: the feeling of belonging.
I believe that keeping the ingredients simple, a classic analogue camera, and natural light always creates a magical atmosphere. Working this way forced us to slow down and be present. The photographs represent the energy shared in each encounter. And assembled in this project, the idea of communion.
Thank you to Park Royal community for allowing me to be a part of their family.
