The seasons of a soul

The seasons of a soul

The trees as a symbol of birth and death through the change of seasons in comparison to a human being’s life cycle. I focused on working with the natural beauty of dried flowers, organic materials and my old photographs.
‘The seasons of a soul’ is the series of my grandparents’ lifetime journey through the changing seasons. I wanted to bring the old photographs come to life, and capture those incandescent moments.
Their first meeting is like spring- flowers are reborn and the heavy scent of flowers. In the summer, their relationship ripens, they marry, raise a family and retire. The blustery fall of leaves in autumn reveal her illness, and the death carriage took her away when the winter come.
