I created this photo in April 2020. At that time, t he coronavirus was
spreading all around the world and we had to not only start getting used
to being socially isolated from one another, but also distance ourselves
from everyday habits. As it may have been a horrible time for many, I
started thinking about the terrible superficial “needs” we have on a daily
basis to be happy. That is also why I called this photo “Rebirth”. For me,
it represents the moment of tranquility and purification needed for our
Earth to take a deep breath and recover.
I truly enjoyed the whole process of creating this image. I started from
scratch by photographing the different parts of the orchid and slowly
building up the whole flower sculpture the way I had it in my mind. The
main object, which is a female body, is associated with fertility and a
new beginning. The vibrant color gives a feeling of empowerment. I find
it interesting that everyone sees the figure in a different way, which is
also the part I love - the space for interpretation.
