Burning is a project that presents a collection of photographs featuring meticulously crafted fires. Fire serves as a powerful symbol in this project, embodying the dual themes of cleansing the past and illuminating the path to the future.
These images were captured intuitively during pivotal moments of life transitions, such as completing high school and embarking on the journey of studying abroad. They also reflect experiences of navigating cultural differences, assuming greater responsibilities, and embracing the transformative journey into adulthood. Within Burning, fire emerges as a potent metaphor for new beginnings, personal growth, and the inevitability of change.
The flames symbolize the process of shedding the old and embracing the new, as well as the illumination of the uncharted territories that lie ahead. Each photograph captures the essence of transformation, offering viewers a visual narrative of resilience and the relentless pursuit of personal evolution.
