One day when I was in front of my window, drinking coffee and thinking, I saw a plane passing by and I photographed it. It was an ordinary plane carrying ordinary passengers at the everyday thirty thousand feet. What made this plane special was that this time the plane stirred some of my thoughts and I felt the joys and upsets of these passengers and remembered my own.
I had been on that plane in both directions. I had been a passenger full of joy and hope, and I had been one with sorrow and apathy. I was traveling to my hometown, I was flying to a city where i felt alone. I was to reunite with my family, and i was to run to the frontlines of my future. And I wanted to share this picture with you.
