We are both here just once. 

We are here now.

There is no “after”.

We  are actually fragile.


The theme that the FRAGILE photography project explores is… fragility. At its core, fragility is temporary, subtle, and strives for perfection.

Using the form of the botanical blossom, the project observes our temporality, sensibility and fragility.  The leaf, the flower, the stem, the tree bud, come into leaf, smell, fade, wither, die – only once. Another blossom is born, buds, comes into leaf, smells, fades, withers, dies – only once. 

In the search for the fragility of the natural elements hides the fragility of the soul. Our own. 


Are we fragile?


About the process:


The photographic process used is a Polaroid emulsion transfer. An emulsion is an extremely fragile layer with chemistry that can be manipulated only in water. It is very thin, and very easy to be broken. 


Opening: 18 August 2022 at 18:00 hrs. In Credo Bonum Gallery. The exhibition will run until 10 September 2022. The FRAGILE photographic installation is supported by the National Culture Fund, Creative Scholarships program.
