Illusion is an abstract photographic series that questions the state of reality. Triggered by a sense of instability during the lockdown, these hazy, off-kilter images translate a strange combination of serenity and restlessness. The process was a way to shift from my disquiet at losing the security of a fixed reality into embracing the possibilities of this new situation. Mental wellness is a universal topic, regardless of origin, religion, culture, etc. Everyone will experience a mental health issue in their lives. The goal of Illusion is to remind ourselves to be mindful of our emotions so that our mental well-being will help us cope whenever an unforeseen event strikes.
