This life is a mix of poison and honey / PRESALE

'This life is a mix of poison and honey' is a rhythmical alternation between themed photo sequences, illustrations and short proverbs from Albania. It draws the viewer into a visual meditation on the place of women in general while alluding to the fact that true equality between the sexes is still a distant reality. Though set in Albania, this book is thought as a mirror for our society.

Creating this body of work meant a fundamental process of personal growth, reflection and understanding which I recorded in an essay included in the book.

This early bird offer includes a signed copy of the book and a little surprise.
