19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Self-Portrait with Lavender

As part of the Dream Away Series, the image depicts another reality, searching for a little peace of mind and hope, as retreating from the burst of violence in the media. People and flowers are present in our life at the most important events: birth, graduation, marriage, the birth of a child, death. Irises are considered to be holy flowers, with a mythical symbol of uniting the earth and heaven
