How does anxiety affect us and how do we handle it? Using tension and discomfort, this series of images evoke situations in which the body and the mind become aware of this anxiety.

The key focus is on objects that we are all familiar with, those that surround us daily. For the audience to make the connection, it is crucial that they feel this intimacy situated in that very moment, a frozen, static second that leads to an accident, which is about to occur. While we observe these photographs the feeling of suspense hits us as our hearts race, producing a rush of adrenaline. We want time to stop so that the action that our eyes see never arrives at its completion.
