The project is about a very personal period of my life, perhaps the most important that has laid the foundation for my whole being. 1989 was a very interesting year, with big changes all over the world, and for me it was a personal one. Then I realized myself. This coincided with my trip to Japan, which will forever remain in my mind. Then I realized the essence of the world and went through a great transformation. My pursuit of perfection was then the foundation on which I set foot. When, every second a person tries to do everything possible in the best way, to give 100% of himself, he becomes very aware and reaches levels of his soul that are higher and makes a connection with his inner self, where he finds crystal clear answers to everything. It was a very fragile condition.
Japan has contributed a lot to this - for me, it is the most valuable part of me. An ideal that I will always strive for. The world I discovered in Japan was what I always wanted to be. Shintoism, traditional Japanese religion, meditation and spiritual development are all part of this.
