The photographer analyzes relationships. An examination with the relation to the people he loves and the relation to himself. Relationships are ambivalent. On the one hand they mean closeness, confidence, security, happiness and home. On the other hand they are affected by the latent fear that everything is going to turn into the opposite. Origin of desperation, downfall, breakdown and loss. The foundation of a life in freedom is appreciation, perception and authenticity to oneself, to the people one loves, in the community and in the world
