Meditations is a series of pictures about experiencing and celebrating the visual language of photography. The work is focused on abstraction and uses a traditional structure of still life. The work is inspired by artistic practices such as painting and sculpture, design and architecture. Other influences come from the history of avant-garde art such as Futurism and Surrealism, Modernism and Minimalism. The philosophy of Meditations is a concept of going deeper into creativity and spiritual ritual.
