“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine
Part of the series: The Hermit’s Way of Looking at Life II
The photo-manipulations works here show the artist’s insight and commentary on the society that he lives in; life through social media, emotions that he goes through as in relation to the current state of society and to the artist's inner circle - as a receiver and observer. All these issues created from an almost hermit point of view.
Why hermit though? It's because, a period of time was used to deliberately ponder on these thoughts to successfully create the emotions the artist intends to convey.
