Freedom is an Illusion is part of the project titled Mono No Aware that started during the forced isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Taken during the second year of the pandemic, the photograph questions whether freedom is real and if everyone who is said to be free will actually be able to realise their right to freedom.

Description

Mono No Aware is a collection of images that result from slowing down, taking time to observe, and putting those observations into a frame while admiring the ephemeral nature of life. Created in moments of solitude, often accompanied by inexplicable melancholy, these monochrome pictures are a peek into the world around me – a world that changes quickly and inevitably. It’s acknowledging that things exist – even for a brief amount of time – and that there is beauty in everything.
