Birth of Rebirth

Photographed by Sveta Maximova.

Inspired by phase of embryo development and the birth process, a metaphorical story about human nature and the environment affecting the individual. Three parts, showing the birth of a character, his collision with reality and overcoming it due the birth of internal energy, are connected by colour gradation that also symbolizes the contradiction of human essence. A series by Sveta Maximova.
