PROJECT A state of mind

Rituals are as old as mankind’s existence, but in western society they are not as common as they used to be. How can we outgrow rituals when we live in times we need them the most? We need rituals that change the state of mind. Working pressure is high and our lives are extremely busy. We have stress and it makes us exhausted. We need a place to connect again. We need a way to find out who we truly are. We need to find our serenity again. In this project I created new rituals myself. These rituals are based on existing rituals. I asked people to perform these rituals and asked them if they found serenity. I captured the experience of the performer in photography and film.
