"The Guilty"

The Guilty

Human beings are, by nature, social animals (Aristoteles). None could live alone out of family, friends, society and community. So we are a human beings, man should share and bear a social consciousness and a responsibility together, as a constituent element that lives in a society. Because ultimate self-fulfillment could achieve only in a society. In order to live rightly in the world as a human being, I would like to do a work that embraces the others through the photograph and I look for people feeling some kind of internal guilt. Even though it could be something very minor, something so bizarre that others cannot understand, if it is a voice from the heart based on one’s life, it is something very important and sensitive to oneself. By seeing their beautiful personality, this confirmed me again. 'Humanity is the only hope.'
