Each of us gives himself the purpose of his existence. Everything happens for something. Just like existence, which needs direction on the way to goals. During my realization, I wanted to refer to the book "The Cracks of Existence", which raised many questions for me. One of them is " What is the meaning of my existence?" I approached the subject by using a 4x5" large format camera so that the photography was a kind of therapy, calming and also an escape.
