The passport-type photographs that I use for the works of the Puzzles Series, I have taken of emigrants who flee their countries because their lives are in danger, they often tell me their stories and many of them are heartbreaking.

It is possible that most of them will be accepted as refugees indefinitely, others only temporarily and the most unfortunate will be deported to their countries of origin.

Mind Maps tries to rethink identities, tolerance and feeling in the skin of the other as a central idea.
