Anxiety by Maria Beatriz Rocha
The project is called “Anxiety” because, in my view, the situation itself has to do with a person trying to exist both in the past and in the future; the first one keeps us worried and with the second one we have absolutely no control over. Living in the present and feeling every single bit of the present moment is something unique, harmless and fulfilling. It could be the best answer.
I’m 22 years old and was born in the Azorean Island of Terceira and am now living in Lisbon, Portugal. I studied Liberal Arts and now I am currently taking a course in art curating. I like to create – moments with people around me, stories with my camera or any other medium, such as painting, collages or illustration. For me, film photography has as much creative substance as it has spiritual substance. It’s your moment one-on-one with light, life and chance.
