"Surrender yourself to the Earth. Return what was loaned to you. Give up your pleasure, your pain, your friends, your lovers, your life, your past, what you desire. You will know nothingness, it is the only reality. Don't be afraid, it's so easy to give."
- Alejandro Jodorowsky, The Holy Mountain (1973 film)
For the past 15 months I have mostly been working with portrayal of different emotional states through series of self-portraits where I put myself in different roles and used my own body as a vessel for depicting a certain concept. Living with clinical depression and anxiety disorder for almost half of my life has left me fascinated with the dark part of the emotional spectrum and the destructive within all of us. I have now begun a new long-term project where I take this fascination further and go out in the open.  I started from myself and what is close to me. At the very begining of this series  I chose to travel abroad,  to the place where I originate from, and document these thoughts by photographing staged dystopian/apocalyptic scenarios where I merged the inner darkness with environmental destruction. I see destruction as both the cause and the result of the constant interaction between the inner self and the world around. But the question is: do we destroy the world because the world is destroying us? 
A part of this work was exhibited in Stockholm, at Galleri Axel as my graduation project where I showcased my photography in two different media - a traditional large-scale fine art print and postcards - each being a piece of a narrative structure open for viewers personal interpretation.
