Humans struggle through life, sometimes turning the daily grind into a hell. In short, we live by floating through a world of chaos.

As seen in Plato’s allegory of the cave, all of us are constantly caught between fictions and realities, battling on the thin line between pleasure and pain.

“Wozu” is a series that shows the state of inner collisions among scared egos—individuals that want to look away from the truth and who, despite the clamor of voices around them, remain largely silent.

“Wozu” is a German word that means “what for.”

We recently launched the LensCulture Network with the idea of offering talented, accomplished p
hotographers a place to showcase their work on a global stage while also giving them a place to share, learn and engage with one another.

The LensCulture Network began with a small number of hand-picked members, and we are very excited to watch it grow and evolve as new photographers apply and are invited to participate as members.
