Maidens of The World
Maidens of The World is a project of non manipulated surrealistic photography. This is a photographic journey that explores the concept of surrealism through urban reflections. The abstraction of Maidens of The World explores concepts of philosophy through fine art photography.
This project wants to tap the creative powers of awareness and imagination by uniting illusion with reality. This venture tries to challenge the distinction between consciousness and physical matter, between mind and body.
These photographs are the artist perception of the philosophical aspect of illusion or Maya. Māyā, a sanskrit word, has several interpretations and may be understood as the phenomenal universe of perceived duality. Even though Maya is a controversial concept, the project's approach is to discern duality through abstract reality. In other words these Maidens represent people and the reflections symbolize their soul.
In this context the reflections of the urban environments of the world are the soul of the mannequins. This impressions aim to explore the notion of duality as a representation of the physical body and the fine spiritual soul.
These Maidens are trying to breath in an illusory multidimensional atmosphere, symbolism of the natural duality of the material existence. Cities: New York , San Francisco, London, Melbourne, Bali, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Barcelona, Berlin, Rotterdam. This book contains 4 Award Winning Artworks.
