Negative Island

This is a long-term project on nostalgia. It uses images of places, things, and situations prone to inspire this state and to bring back core memories that shaped the way we see ourselves and the world.

The title comes from the saying no man is an island, as I believe nostalgia, related to solitude as it may seem, is something that brings people together at a deeper and more meaningful level, for the need to express it goes beyond our power or fear, reasoning or cynicism, and defines us, ultimately, as human beings. Many see nostalgia as a mark of the soul, and I tend to agree.
