Dissolution is proud to present Postcards Home, the latest photo project by Diana Smykova. This series explores what constitutes home through dialogue and visuals, sharing the stories of individuals from different countries and backgrounds and how their sense of home is formed through their experiences of migration and identity in the modern world.
Through her lens, Smykova poses the questions of what home is, how the concept evolves throughout life, and how it is influenced by external circumstances. The photographs on display at Dissolution will be accompanied by the subjects’ reflections, providing a deeper understanding of their personal stories and experiences. This exhibit is a unique opportunity to delve into the meaning of home and what it means to individuals around the world.
