The New Earth project talks about the human condition, reconnection with nature, the zeitgeist we are living. On the other hand the poems are offering the insight into the personal questions and the relationship of an individual and the society. During the lockdown I went deep into the woods, reconnected with nature, connected with myself, avoided bears and ticks while making ultra large wet plate collodion glass negatives, size 40x50cm or 16×20”. Inspired by the work of Ana Mendieta, my photography is a document of the rituals performed, questions asked, vibrating vibrations and the given answers. All these photos are carbon contact prints on glass from wet plate collodion negatives. Size of the image is 40x50cm.
