After retiring I have put lot of my feelings to my photographs. This has been very therapeutic. When making this series I went through my psychical journey by picturing it as an dystopian society. Small human facing faceless society was an easy role to play. I have taken lot of self portraits so it was obvious that I play the role of a 'human' in these pictures myself. When looking at the world now days pictures also work in a bigger scale and not just as a one man's battle inside his head.
