There is a old saying " we fear of the unknown" Does that sound familiar to you? Isn't that only mediocrity stuff, some kinda old story from the previous generation filled up with doomed illusions? Uhm hard to say don't you think?.... Anyway fear became visible and irresistible part of our lifetime. No need to hide it, trying to lie to yourself telling others fear do not exist, tangled thinking we all know these things. Instead we should feel it, accept it, embrace it. Sounds like walk out, leave everything behind... never an easy thing to do. These 3 images are only mine depiction of fear in human existance.

Dublin-based photographer Martin Marcisovsky captures some interesting silhouettes fixed in equally engaging landscapes. These small figures appear to be either deep in thought or on some kind of journey with their backs facing us, the voyeurs peering into their dreamy scenes. The surreal imagery leads one to believe that these worlds are perhaps within the minds of each subject. In his photo titled Me In Many Ways, we see a self-portrait of the photographer sitting atop what appears to be a misty riverbed at the bottom of a waterfall with an umbrella and a book at hand. It's an unusual spot
