Relaxed Minds

The project “Relaxed Mind” is a visual representation of what people do to relax and calm down.

In this series reality and fantasy are mixed through photography and illustration. It will be possible to briefly peek into someone mind and discover their rather normal or eccentric activity to unwind.

We live in a world where we deal with stress everyday, it lurks in every corner, makes the easiest task exhaustive, it makes us not want to connect with others; and that is exactly what I want to prevent with this collection of images, I want people to see and connect with the subjects in the series, discover and learn what other people do to deal with stress.
And hopefully be inspired by them to eventually try out to dedicate a moment of your day to yourself, where worrisome thoughts are not allowed.
