It started from a simple summertime photo document, but soon it turned on to an esoteric search with the pass of the time. Summertime where we set ourself where we like to be. The way we like to be or dreamt, trying to reach the peak of every moment.
I turned my self to an observer, making images from others’ summertime to mine. In a way, my thoughts and experiences even my dreams connect with the scenery and the people in it. Beautiful and strange at the same time.
