"The child’s soul is as complex as ours, riddled with similar contradictions, tragically struggling againts the perrenial: I wish I could but I can’t, I know I should but I won’t manage." — Zofia Rydet
Project Don’t Teach The Birds To Fly depicts a summer in my homeland — Orava. I took those pictures between years 2014 and 2016, while spending some of my summer time at home. Reffering to the quote of Zofia Rydet, I have attempted to capture the complexity of children’s emotions and mainly focused on those, that we rarely associate with children. All the pictures were taken with 35mm film camera.
