My name is Jovana Rikalo and I am a fine art and portrait photographer. With these photos I wanted to show connection between darkness and light.

I used male hands painted in black to show darkness. Why black? Because black is such a strong and powerful colour. We are living in the world where people are telling you what you need to do, media is controlling you, technology, everything… I wanted to send a message that the only person who can tell you what needs to be done is nobody else but you. Don’t let anybody control you. Everything is in your hands and not others.

So, don’t let anyone that you can’t. Be your own inspiration and believe that you can.

Also take a look into my other photo series of powerful portraits.
