For many years, I’ve tried to settle my toes down on the road, but never succeeded. So many sweet homes & good people I met and adored, but always, my toes were humbly rumbled as there was always a missing (or, invisible) part, which made me float in the air like a ghost.

For last few months, I have been taking photographs as a weapon against the fear, sadness & disappointment from my recent life. As I am at home, it was easy, but not too easy to accept the fact that I am home. So true.

A beacon does not shine on its own base. But a camera does. In the end, it was a journey home to find myself again. I take photograph with those reasons.

This is a small glimspe from MaYa’s I Am Home series.

Stayed tuned for more MaYa on aamora . . .

MaYa Sinji Jung is an intercultural artist trying to inspire people by her images, sounds, writings and smiles. She has BA degree in Cultural Studies and MA degree in Anthropology(JAPAN), but those are less important than her rambling toes.
