In these pandemic days people are encouraged to place an barrier of doubt from one another. Many of the times people are told to be at the house and not to go to public places. More people are struggling to get by everyday. This project is about filling my inner space as well as my house by myself from morning till night,trying to be cheerful. Digital collage of images of only myself was used to create the photographs. I would like to send the message to other lonely souls in all parts of the world to hang in there and stay hopeful.

I am a self-taught photographer. With many trials and errors, I am learning to express myself through photography. I Have many stories to tell. Small stories of everyday life, with questions I try to answer. Photography helped me understand myself, and the world surrounding me. Expressing myself with photography itself has been a great joy, and I am grateful for this.
