Liminality was being sequestered at home in self isolation. In between life as we knew it to be and the new normal that was about to begin. I manifested a universe that brought me out of my home and into a new world. A space where my collective memories and experience of my past merged. It birthed the creation of my masks. Each one has a story to tell and together I speak of them as my monsters. These masks were made by hand out of everything I could get my hands on within the confines of four walls. I embodied each mask's character when I wore them on my face and shot a series of self portraits. A Knight's Nostalgia Mask- Reimagined for the 21st century and inspired by the ⠀illustrations of knights in storybooks from my childhood, I explore with gender fluidity in this mask. The combination of heaviness and hardness of armour, with the lightness and airy movements of tassel, provides an interesting dichotomy between hard and soft. Knights are often portrayed as masculine warrior soldiers.In this piece I strip that away and show a softer side to highlight more feminine attributes. The black tassels on the mask are dip dyed in pink. In the dark past of LGBTQIA+ history, this colour has often been used to identify queer people such as the use of pink triangles on the attire of prisoners in concentration camps.

I took this image of my friends on our summer holiday, in between finishing A-Levels and going to uni or travelling. I aimed to explore the juxtaposition between being 18 and legal adults, about to move out into the next chapter of their lives, whilst also still being filled with youthful energy at the height of our adolescence. I worked to convey this through the football table being the centrepiece of the photograph as it highlights the playfulness of young adulthood, despite it being filled with increasing responsibility. Furthermore, this was taken during the COVID-19 pandemic at a time of low restrictions and infection rates, and I wanted to explore the difficulty or ease at which young people were able to readjust to “normal life”. The photograph was shot on 35mm film in July 2021.

About this project. “Hard to tell exactly what this is” explores the ambiguous essence of photography and the relationship between memory and image. A photographic essay composed by scenes that depicts an experience of what makes me, and at the same time what make us as a society, because all of us were made by the same start dust in a continuous state of liminality, a constant change of who we are and what we are.

The poem was written in the Roman piazza it references, where as a foreigner I was feeling both happy, melancholy, and numb for more reasons than the dental anesthetic. The photos attached are three I have taken as an immigrant in my adopted country that, at least to me, in some way captured the spirit of liminality.

The way I saw London was magical, it changed my life forever. Im not the same since I was there. In this photos i can reveal myself in all the possible ways, I felt the power of the city, its energy, its people. I felt that everything is possible. I felt myself as never before. I found myself, i found someone i had never knew before. Im a black and white lover and i feel these photos dont need color because they are all feellings. These photos express my freedom and liberation with the world and the way I experience life through my eyes and the way i see the light and the darkness. My photos are the walk through shadows, reflections, brightness and light.

''Entre la vida y la muerte yo elijo el cielo'' hago alusión al nombre de la obra del artista Antonio Lebrija, fuente de inspriracion y creación de esta fotografía. Su obra se llama entre la vida y la muerte y en mi perspectiva el cielo es una mejor opción. Soy un sonador que anda caminando siempre por las nubes y así como el carro cae y se refleja. Así se reflejan mis pensamientos, cayendo uno a uno en picada con diferentes formas, con diferentes texturas, con diferentes elementos. En este caso, este bello carro. Pero no es cualquier carro, es un clásico elegante que goza de la libertad. Que no decide entre la realidad del concreto que es su lugar o en la inmensa magia que el cielo le da. El agua lo vuelve a su realidad por que en ella ve el movimiento de sus ondas. Es ahi cuando sabe que a tocado el cielo y a vuelto para contarlo.

Is that me? Or is just an illusion of my thoughts? How do you feel after a lost? Didn't you felt that you lose some part of you? Or this lost creates a new version of you?. She and I we was asking ourselfs the same, we both lost something. We know that we are not longer the same person anymore who we used to be and we are not sure who we are now. The difference between me and her is that I lost some identity, my self and some dreams. I do not know who is this new person. After covid started and all that time isolate, I lost some of my self finding my purpose in life. I had been living the past six years of my life living in both sides of the border US/MX. And to be honest I never feel part of any of those in all that time. But now I have been here at my natal home spending more time that I had been in years and it feel strange. I discovered that I do not longer connected with the culture of my city is. I also noticed that it changed all this years, I was so busy going from one side to another that I wasn't putting attention how the city growted. My city Tijuana, my home changed and I changed too. Who am I know? I ask my self. I know Im not longer the person who I used to be before covid begins, and I know Im not sure if I want to be that person again. When covid started I was 25, now Im 27, times fly. And she? My friend in the picture? Well I only can tell you she lose her mom and that is all you need to know.

In the midst of an emotionally tough time, I went travelling and went to Cambodia a couple of other countries in Asia. Being from an immigrant family and an island, family and challenging what success means in a city like London is something I always pick up on when I take photos. I like a busy frame and I'm attracted to the juxtapositions of textures and expressions in one place. Here, the couple's hard work to make a future for their children, in a country where control over your freedom was never easy, drew me in and connected with my own experiences of my parents hard work, to give me opportunities they never had. They were really lovely as they made sure we took snacks they had made to eat and keep us on our journey. To me these people are just as successful as any city banker or corporate exec in this multi-dimensional world.

I've suffered from depression and anxiety my entire life.I always loved photography and fashion, and “modelling” for my own images seemed like the most effective emotional outlet I could find. As I started to take nude self-portraits, which seemed to capture me in my most honest and vulnerable state to express my emotions – both positive and negative – through the photographs. The process of taking self-portraits has taught me its okay to feel vulnerable and how to express that vulnerability to others.

I wrote this piece gazing outside my small university window during a very random but typically confusing British snowy season. I got out of my bed and just felt lifted and light when watching each flake do whatever it intended to do. I often find that my writing process works when I am called to look out into the world and connect it with how I am feeling internally or how the external reflects my internal in some way, whether through personal relationships, societal issues or mental conflict. I find that this piece helped me understand that it is okay to accept change and that there is infamous beauty in life's chaotic and beautiful ebbs and flows.

The view from Ben Nevis. Hiking Ben Nevis was challenging but totally rewarding. I was prepared for it but I wasn't prepared for what I found during the ascent. It started with a brick of juice here, a plastic bag there... but as I paid more attention to it, I saw that very often there was trash on the sides of the path. At some point, I couldn't keep walking leaving the wrapper of a chocolate bar. It was trapped by a rock in the middle of a water stream, very visible but still there. So at that time I told my partner I was going to pick it up. From that moment, we started picking up all the trash we could carry on our way up and specially paying attention to it during the descent. Honestly, your knees suffer so much on the rocks as you are coming down that picking up litter was a good distraction. There are initiatives to clean the mountain lead by volunteers, that have found the most strange things including half a toilet or underwear... What if everyone would ensure to leave no trace? What if the next time you see some rubbish you make a little effort to pick it up and put it in a bin so we can all enjoy this magnificent view?

From the smallest of seeds the tree grows, striving for the skies. Branches form, ramify and blossom in the rhythm of time. The human figure transforms. Growing out and into each other. _____ Wie der Baum, der aus dem Samen wächst, zum Keimling wird und in die Höhe strebt. Wie die Äste sich formen, sich verzweigen und im Rhythmus der Zeit blühen.

This photogrpah is from my oingoing project titled, "Radiation". Radiation is a series of portraits taken with monochromatic UV photography, a technique used in dermatology to reveal the damage caused by sun exposure, among other studies. The purpose of the work is to raise awareness of our skin as a protective shield against an outside world that is progressively becoming more uninhabitable due to global warming. The project uses a direct/scientific technique through an aesthetical point of view; it presents the imperceptible appearance of our organism as an analogy for how we do not consider global warming alarming because it’s not immediately apparent, though its effects are interacting with our bodies without us noticing, leaving behind a trace in our skin.

I was interested in an “out of place” concept. Living in “Sin City” Las Vegas, I thought it’d look really cool to recreate one of my favorite photographer’s work, Peter Lindbergh. The idea of an angel walking the busy streets of Vegas, amongst all the people, looked really cool in my mind. And it also lends itself to open interpretation.

Dear postall, With everything happening in the world today I think it is meaningfull to be aware of your roots and connect with them, so to honor your ancestors and have a better understanding of who they were and who you are. Sometimes through conversation ,reading or research but for me connecting also happens through painting. My energy and heart merge with the subject or person i am painting. This feels like i come home to myself a little bit more everytime. I believe that by looking back (at your family, who they are and where they came from ) you look forward. Sometimes this is a difficult path, but it will help you show parts of yourself that need to be seen in order to grow. This is what the ROOTS series is about for me. Connecting with my black roots. Painting this series felt like therapy and healing. For the series i asked my father, a photographer, to select pictures of the family. These pictures were my inspiration. I love how, my father being somehow involved in my process, feels full circle. thanku for sharing my story. The titels of my paintings together form a poem : 1 Grandfather,what’s on the next page? 2 love your curlers and your curls. 3 just like chiki would have said. 4 and what is it you are thinking of? is it me? 5 in my mind. i smell your scent. i know it’s you , it’s always you. 6 my wisest auntie would have said. 7 and my other auntie, i remember her laughing. 8 you look just like us , like me , like her x love noni

I usually create stories that are expressed through a random face, body or a shape - mostly women. They are fragile but strong at the same time. Somehow, I also love to express a bit of mysteriousness in my work as everyone has a little bit of mystery inside or there's always some part hidden from the world. That's what I like to express by painting only one half of a face. I also celebrate imperfection. My favourite media is ink, acrylic paints and natural pigments on natural papers or naturally dyed canvases.

Stefan Doru Moscu
As an artist I have always been interested in special textures like an object degraded, decaying, rusting or corroded in time, and that is why I am painting with broad brushstrokes of blues, grays, browns and greens and their complex structure offer a contemporary vision of major political narratives and such fundamental, universal topics as the abuse of power, exploitation and oppression, and also of a personal, individual human struggle and takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. In my paintings color assumes extreme importance, suggesting a somber mood, as furtive and enigmatic. In my research I intend to deconstruct the normal reality, fairy tales, old photo that are parts of our childhood and adult culture and I like to create a discourse that challenge the existing political, economical, social and technological paradigms. For me, communist era is something more like a tale. I don't feel communism as a pressure on my childhood, though I have some interesting and sometimes, sad stories of my parents. Nevertheless my work goes beyond this kind of references, because of its psychological background. Here, solitude and fear look rather universal. Cinema is rather closer than any other approach. I am also focused around the relationship between man and nature in urban environments. I try to obscure all my historical and political references by fusing them with personal memories, film references, frames from the entertainment industry and elements from art history.

Sona Sahakian
Sona Sahakian (1996) is a visual artist based in the Hague, the Netherlands. She graduated from the department Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of the Arts , The Hague. Her works consist of paintings, drawings, collages, photographs , installations and films (video art). In recent years she has participated in various groups exhibitions and projects. Her works are about the search for an inner experience of time, where memories are made experienceable in the shape of fixation and transformation. She strives for a fusion of past and present , which creates a dynamic and timeless dimension. The transience, the cycle of human existence - life, death and rebirth - plays an important role in this; this transforms our reality and strengthens our human consciousness. In her art she wants to stimulate people's imagination and sensory experiences in which the traces of the past are revived in the present, which remains anchored in her memory and thus enriches her personal history. In this way she wants to inspire people to make an inner journey by really feeling and discovering for themselves what the treasury of their existence is. Photography is another way for her to observe and record reality. It is an art form in which you freeze a moment of time that immediately becomes the past, but at the same time you breathe new life into the present. This makes the events you have experienced more valuable and reliable, which gives you a new view of life and influences your perspective of life. You always carry the past with you as memories, creating an altered cycle of human existence, which is a glimpse of your soul and consciousness.

My work has multiple influences - architecture, environment, music and experiences. The cityscapes that I depict are landmarks and buildings that are testament to bygone eras, echoes of life and industry before gentrification and development. The environment features frequently as I am intrigued by the ongoing struggle between nature and man's impositions on it. Experiences are important to us all - so often we try to categorise them instead of giving into the spontaneity and going with what we feel. The resulting work I produce takes the form of drawing, painting and printmaking with photography often as a starting point, a digital note or sketch.

Nairie Aintablian
Hello, my name is Nairie Aintablian, a fashion, portrait, and conceptual photographer and creative director based in Los Angeles. Every moment of every day, I view the world like a constant photo/video capture. I’m obsessed with the different ways light can hit or reflect onto something and soften or add edge to any surface, the saturation in the sky during a certain hour of sunset, and the emotion it can invoke. That’s what I want people to take away from my photos. Emotion, a thought, a feeling, a vibe. This photo is one of my favorites because this was the first time I ever looked at my work and couldn’t wait to upload it into my laptop and share it with all my friends and family. This was taken in the middle of no where with a few friends who never modeled but such amazing people who were patient with me and took direction, my 11 year old Canon Rebel T3 and a dusty kit lens, lying on dirty concrete in an abandoned town. Of all the photos I took, this one [photo] was the first time I ever felt like a real photographer, like I finally proved to myself that I am worth pursuing this art and my hard work really is showing. I love this photo with every fiber in my body and I hope others like it too.

From the moment Doro walked into the communal kitchen of our flat, I was impressed by her appearance: she was intelligent, verbally strong and seemed to be the same person in every company. She was free, and I happened to be looking for freedom. My fascination for her resulted in a multimedia project of eight months. I photographed her and asked her to photograph me. I made self-portraits and we made duo portraits. I made notes about my feelings towards her and the photographs. Multiple questions arose, such as: can a photo project be an excuse for creating a deep, long-lasting bond? Do the images show how our relationship develops? To what extent will our relationship revolve around this project? How can you make a project with your subject instead of about? How does a photographer shift between being a photographer, a director and a companion? And how do different cameras, from phone to medium-format to digital, influence the depiction of someone? A once-in-a-lifetime experimental project about the three-dimensionality of photography as well as identity. A story of two young women from the other side or Europe, Croatia and the Netherlands, born in the same generation, carrying different history, and finding something in each other.
