The term liminal spaces in photography and internet culture is relatively recent, since the late 2010s. Liminality in Latin means a certain transitional, threshold state. A distinctive feature of liminal spaces in photography is the reflection of something very familiar and close, but at the same time alienated and, at times, even frightening.

The series is a rethinking and display of liminal spaces in a natural context, which forms the metaphysical meanings of what is seen.
