Man is not comprised of separate parts, but an integral unity of the
body, the soul and the spirit. The body is the materialized human nature;
the Soul is the vital force that animates the body. It is not just a heap
of matter, but a moving, growing, emotional and sensory being. Animals
have souls too, even plants. However, the human soul is given
consciousness, mind and reason and is capable of abstract perception.
This, on the other hand, paradoxically though, does not stop people
abusing their bodies or even taking their own life. There is not any
animal that can consciously damage itself. Finally, the third part of the
integral unity is the spirit that animals do not possess.
These photographs are trying to say that contemporary man has lost touch
with the truest and the highest entity of his kind. The result of this
inner alienation can be seen in the human's uneasiness, lack of identity
and loss of hope.Creating the world, God created two levels of existence:
the spiritual or the mental level, and the material or the bodily level.
In the former, God created the angels, who do not possess a physical body,
and in the latter level the universe was created, with the stars, planets,
and the animal world. People, and only people, can exist on both the
levels. With their spirit and spiritual mind, they live and make company
with the angels. On the other hand, through their body and soul, people
move, feel and think, eat and drink, change food into energy, take part
organically in the material world, which passes through them via their
