This is a project based on a quote by John Green “The marks humans leave are too often scars.”
The idea came from one of my low phases as an artist. I studied my feelings intensely to realise that we as humans must open our hearts to every experience it can take, give whatever it takes make other happy because that’s the only way to learn, gain wisdom and fill our souls.
But the downside of being a giver, is to accept your scarred heart back from people who mistreat it, mend it with time and send it out again,
For the series, I invited acquaintances or people I met in the metro to my studio to document this feeling of being scarred.
The photos were made over a period of 12months.
