A visit to Namibia, the country of my birth

I visited my country of birth, Namibia, for the first time in 10 years last week. What an experience! My body, soul and heart immediately recognised the place where my life began. Wide open spaces and the kind of silence that actually has its own sound. The landscape is scattered with traces of matter in different stages of their life cycle. Everything held such a strong connection with my Traces collection and I gathered many imprints, both in my mind’s eye and on camera, of the symmetry and cycle of life. Thank you to the land and people I gathered with, that inspired me and gave me renewed energy.
