This work displays how even with a language barrier, a team of people from all over the world can come together and create an interesting piece of work with an important message.

The theme is adjustment and change.
The change of poses, from the cramped position in picture one to the expanded jump in the final photo are meant to represent the feeling of slowing finding your feet and creating a sense of belonging in a new home.

I lived in Tokyo for three months, and initially, I felt lost due to the cultural differences.
However, as I gradually adapted to the social norms there, it started to fell like my new home.

When I met the model Nadja, she mentioned her experience in competitive static gymnastics.
That’s when I immediately thought that the awkward-looking poses could reflect the emotions we experience when moving to a new place.
