‘Longing I’ & ‘Longing II’, is part of the body of work ‘In Between’. The portraits are taken of a Salvadora Oleoides tree and a Pine tree, where I see parts of myself reflecting in the trees. The trees symbolise origins and roots, but it also symbolises the sense of home and the fact that you can feel at home in more than one place. The picture of the Salvadora Oleoides tree was taken in Badshahi Mosque, in Lahore, Pakistan. While the photo of the Pine tree was taken in the countryside in the region of Ostrobothnia, in Finland.
