Sadness is a mixture of feelings. Pain, bitterness, frustration, power. I could discern them through the lens of my camera and on the faces of people I photographed. Humans need to deal with a lot of pain because of the constant flow of experiences.

Many believe that the only way to live with sadness is to immerse into it and abandon the ordinary life for a while. It is such an underestimated and worthwhile feeling.

It seems that we are always trying to escape it but it plays an important role in our lives. It can change the way we think, how we see other humans, it might help us notice how big and deep they are. Perhaps that’s why sadness is so mysterious and appealing.
