“Courage and Fear”
In my most intimate work to date, with my mother and my father’s portraits I wanted to celebrate the human, the marks people make on the world driven by their true essence, treasuring the extraordinary as well as the ordinary, finding their inner beauty. And me, their common ground. “The border between two countries, the collateral damage, the paradox that joins the two but also splits them apart” Rupi Kaur.
