“Those like me look ahead, even if their heart is always a few steps behind” (Alda Merini) Philophobia, the fear of falling in love and of love itself. I believe every person is unique in their own way. I do not believe in a universal concept of love, but in a love that takes on many forms. Although not all of us understand, and life must go on, when you wish to fly but have broken wings, it becomes truly difficult to start afresh.I drew inspiration from my subconscious and used photography to portray my fears, my dreams and my expectations of love in n a surrealist form.
