Six Swans

2001

The project is an homage to a tale by the Brothers Grimm called "Six Swans". The tale tells the story of 6 brothers who became swans after their wicked step mother cast a spell on them. I focused on the metamorphosis theme in the story – the transformation of a human being into a swan – and saw it as one of self portrait, depicting changeable situations of death and rebirth.
