The image is a part of the 'Soul's eyes' series of self-portraits dedicated to experiencing the pain of losing a parent. It is a process of transition during which people adapt to the reality of loss and learn to live without their loved one. Mourning creates a constant alternation of acceptance and rejection of the rules that life imposes.

Natalia Serzhanova is a visual artist specialising in conceptual self-portrait photography and living in Milan, Italy. Starting out as a fashion photographer, influenced by social processes in society and her personal life, she decided to devote herself to conceptual fine art photography. In her work she mainly explores human psychology, social processes and the meaning of being human, his relationship with nature.
