I always felt there is a deeper meaning inherent in the summer season, one that goes beyond the mere anticipation of a well-earned vacation. The drowsiness of the long hours of heat, the lethargy that cloaks thoughts and actions alike, and the tendency to defer most decisions until September are not expressions of laze or procrastination. Instead, they are conditions dictated by Nature herself, and it is thanks to them that we can afford the time and energy to peep inwards and outwards. Ultimately, summer offers us a chance to sneak peek through open windows and doors left conveniently ajar. Regardless of whether this process is literal or symbolic, we are called to experiment with new points of view and reconfirm or adjust our positioning, getting ready to spring forward soon once again.
Within this context, I share here a themed collection of photos that focus on views framed by windows and doors. Besides the memories attached to each instantané, these travel relics – going under the broad title: “Perspectives” – act as a reminder of the numerous angles of life, the exploration of which defines our evolution. May they inspire you as much as they have influenced me.
