This portfolio is about an abandoned village I visited recently. I’m exploring how the past connects to the present. A vanished world, times long gone, lives lived and passed. A once prosperous village, abandoned by people, and reduced to rubble, nature taking its toll. By including a person, I wanted to connect the past with the present. The raven is a symbol of transformation in many cultures, sometimes a dark sign, so it was appropriate that there was one flying over this ruined village.
