Daciana Lipai - Turning Black into Color

Turning Black into Color


photopoems for the brokenhearted,
the path of finding resilience after losing someone
dear and transforming the grief into happiness



“Beautiful imagery. Each photograph carefully thought through and placed in a black and white/color arrangement which seems random at first, but as words are added to each of them they reveal a sadness which is slowly dampened by the appearance of color.
A blend of distress and comfort, hopelessness and courage, sorrow and peace can be found in each and every one of the pages.
One can see the true color (or sometimes lack of) of the author’s soul, all the struggles and retreats, but mostly the courage she had to face and conquer the tremendous emptiness the loss of her loved ones left within her.
Truly a beautiful book that is guaranteed to uncover the most hidden sentiment and bring to light a plethora of emotions.”

“No worries, I’ll be ok.
But it takes time for images to fade away,
It takes time trying to forget words,
It takes time for tears to dry,
When all your heart is overwhelmed
And numbed from pain,
From your passing from Earth into Heaven.
It just takes time.
So, don’t worry, I’ll be ok.”
