“An Almost Home: Hokkaido” is a chapter of my long term project in which I question my own search of home and what exactly would a home be for me.
Scattered all over the globe, flying where the instinct leads – I call my generation “the bird generation”.
I found an almost home, geographically named Hokkaido, the most northern island of Japan.
A land that is so different from where I was born and yet the snow tastes the same, the birds can still fly and the trees have strong roots. I felt both cold winds and happiness when I laid tired at night in my bed. Though while traveling I felt in peace. But in peace the need was born and it melted my perception with the surrounding.
As my search of home continues, I added black raw cuts on the photos. They represent the empty, missing parts that I still am on a quest to discover.
