According to dictionaries, the word niche derives from the Latin “nidus” or nest. Expanding from its primary sense as an architectural recess, a niche can be applied to a rocky hollow, crack, crevice, or foothold. The sense of a niche as a clearly defined narrow space led to its use describing the relational position of an organism’s species, its ecological niche. I always understood this word in another, slightly different way. For me, it resembles that place in human life, where you do not have to bend your thoughts or dreams, where you can just be yourself, just be.
The search for that niche of your own is a continuous emotional development, where searching and finding are a dynamic, intersecting transition.
In my project, I try to capture moments where the search for or maybe the presence of inner balance are visible.
