“Tenderness” is a project based in the idea of carrying within us the same emotional baggage wherever we travel to.
Through the use of three main colours present in those photos, I tried to address different emotions and states of mind — either feeling restless, hiding away, the urge need of immersing ourselves within the surrounding nature to escape our own reality.
Those photos were mostly taken during Summer and in geographically opposite places in Europe, which gave me the sense of universal emotions regardless where we live.
