 “When the hustle and bustle of urban life diminished during quarantine days, and natural environments were emptied of human presence, these places became a place for animals and birds' re-presence. Over time, the tranquility and beauty of nature overcame the crowd of urban life. For me, this meant being born from nothingness and Re_Birth.” L.R.
