Read whole concept On Thursday, 24 February 2022, the world looked at me with dark eyes. The reality of the totalitarian system from which I had fled in the 1980s caught up with me and showed its true face.

For those who have overcome their fear, liberated their spirit and stood up to the autocrats, liars and despots of this world, this project is dedicated.

In reference to the young woman from Nizhniy Novgorod holding a white, blank sheet of paper in a public square who was arrested by two policemen, I photographed Mihaela's hands with a blank sheet of paper, and printed a 13 x 18 cm negative.

A gesture of protest, a symbol for all protests.

In a darkroom, I began to expose the same motif on old photographic paper seemingly endlessly.

I count the days and paint the numbers with a brush soaked in fixative on the exposed but not yet developed photographic paper. A daily photographic ritual.
