The title of the work is identical to a series of photographs by Huseyin shot in Odessa, showing curtains blowing in the wind. These images inspired an installation of hardened lace curtains, frozen in time and space. The work refers to the gesture of opening the windows to set free the soul of the deceased, as well as the idea of a spirit present in a room, mysteriously lifting the curtains to reveal its presence.

The moments that matter II
I took several photographs while playing around with A. on Sunday morning. There isn’t a better feeling for my photographic soul than to capture the mood and light of the moment… and I love these. Since the one I posted got 4000 notes in 48h (yaaay) I decided to upload some more. Love, S.
