Project “Psyché and Eros”
Project "Psyché and Eros". Its name is inspired by Greek mythology - the goddess of mental health and her story with the cupid Eros. This concept highlights the importance of mental health, which has become more and more talked about lately. People often hide their mental health problems and they are afraid to address the problems with those around them. But our mental health is important, and we are lucky that we don't have to hide it, like Psyche and Eros had to hide their love so they wouldn't make Venus angry... because we often want to solve our problems, but we are afraid of making those around us angry. The concept of this photo is based on photographer’s own experience, when she had to learn to accept even her sad self and accept depression, tetanic attacks and panic attacks as part of her life and not be afraid to talk about it.
Fairy Godmother - After a year, I managed to arrange a photoshoot with my mom again. This time we turned her into a fairy godmother. Lately I've been heavily influenced by renaissance paintings, so together with my MUAH artist, we created an extraordinary fairy godmother. This photo mirrors and merges our joint creativity and feelings. Baska Slováková created the wings and the moth, which is often considered an ugly creature. I know many people who are actually afraid of these creatures and they see them as a symbol of evil. I am, however, fascinated by moths and I firmly believe that looking at these photos of my mom you will at least pause to reflect that beauty can come in many forms - what one may see as "ugly" another may find "beautiful"... I think all feelings are just fine as long as they don't escalate into attacks and hatred. I think everything can be looked at with humility and love. And that's what this extraordinary beauty of life is all about.
