(SM)ALL THINGS SHALL PASS

C-Print Photo Series / 100 x 130 cm each / Ole Ukena, 2018

The photo series was shot during Holi, the indian festival that celebrates the victory of “light over darkness”.
It is a portrait of Ukena’s Brazilian born spiritual teacher Prem Baba who later that year became involved in an incident causing the current film project that was in the middle of production to a full stop. The photo series is the remaining artifact and a potential reminder that we have nothing in our control: projects, plans, how people perceive us. What at one moment is a seemingly bright red color is a few seconds later already gone with the wind.
