"Beast by the Waterfall Guesthouse is a photographic fiction as well as a reconstruction of my childhood travelling memories. 

I used to fantasize the world as a sleeping beast, who was gigantic, bizarre, and quiet. I was able to imagine it as my secret friend, regardless of its wishes. The silence of the beast was an umbrella, shielding off most truths of the world. Everywhere was but a strange land waiting to be explored and discovered. Since I have entered the process of adult socialization, my view of the world changed, from a given and relatively static universe, to an ever-moving, progressing ribbon that needs to be pursued. This caused the loss of one mental dimension. To find my lost dimension back, I escaped from my routine life and started my trip of getting lost."
