Title: ‘Stay at Home’, Fine Art Photography by Anna Heimkreiter (Self-portrait, 2020)
Location: Upper Bavaria, Germany
About the artwork: This conceptual photograph was inspired by the 2020 pandemic and how it affected every-day life. It was created during the first lockdown, a time that was unsettling for many of us.
Having to ‘stay at home’, however, also presented an opportunity to reflect and invite change. When the outside noise quiets down, we become aware of how much our mind is our home, too.
This self portrait is a reminder to take care of your mind (and body) like a home. Make yourself comfortable. Invite the good stuff in. Get rid of what no longer serves you. We all need a little maintenance sometimes – take time to go inside, to close your eyes, to listen closely.
Mental health is just as precious as our physical health and I’m glad that the awareness for this is slowly growing.
Fun fact: It does not matter how far away from civilization you think you are, when you start dancing around with a self-built cardbord box house on your head, of course, somebody will come by and stare at you. I don’t blame the kid. Taking creative self portraits certainly does leave an impression. 😂
