Mixed feelings

     The flowers I have collected to pose as models in front of the camera always give me mixed feelings. On the one hand, I create a beautiful picture, admiring their tenderness and fragility, and on the other hand, I suffer from guilt that I have taken their lives in exchange for only their portrait.
     I decided to express an ambivalent emotional experience visually when the same object evokes opposite feelings in a person at the same time.
     This very complicated range of senses shows us the imperfection of the habitual thought process of splitting everything into black and white.
