Thanatophobia

 

The term Thanatophobia can generally be understood as the fear of death. Because it is not possible to imagine our own death, this lack is often accompanied by disorientation and aimlessness. In fact this fear is so intense that this anxiety also generates many, if not all, phobias people experience in everyday life. The series "Thanatophobia" can be seen as an attempt to deal with the existential theme instead of ignoring it. Where words often fall short, the photographs try to elicit universal human feelings about death.
