...Strangers passing in the street

By chance two separate glances meet

And I am you and what I see is me...


Series inspired by Pink Floyd's Echoes. ‘Echoes,’ as Roger Waters declared in an interview, was the attempt to describe “The potential that human beings have for recognizing each other’s humanity and responding to it, with empathy rather than antipathy.“ The song describes precisely the potential that mankind has and has remained unexpressed, suffocated by ambitions, by the pursuit of success, power and money. The whole song is an invite to meditate, to rejoin the universe, to full harmony. An invite to seek what’s essential - to target the sharing, the solidarity, the abandon of our individualism.
