When I was a child, I wanted to write a book about a world where all continents are physically connected and therefore have no borders.
In today’s world, I find a lot of painful past with cracks in the present. Photographs are not only a proof for those cracks, but they also are connected to my second home that my parents abandoned.
The medium of photography is oftentimes a tool of power by humiliating others and keeping privilege for the mighty ones. I look at the past while finding common denominators in the present times - not only in current political strategies but also in my very own growing trauma in the background of my Slovak-Vietnamese identity.
I no longer believe in the boundless state of the whole world but I look for ways out of the repetitiveness of our history.
