I created this image from a photo I took of grass against a background of the Mediterranean sea. I’ve played with it and noticed on the right hand side a faint image which I imagine is a ship sailing to unknown horizons – towards a port far away, in hope, in excitement and, hopefully, in safety.
Yesterday I read a blog where the guy was going interviews with refugee children from South Sudan. The young girl’s dream was to be a doctor. And so often when children in refugee camps or living in poverty are asked about what they want to be when they grow up, they say “Doctors”, “Teachers”, “Scientists”, “Surgeons”, and so on. All wish to contribute back to society and to the well-being of others.
So this piece of digital art is dedicated to those young dreamers – those who live in hope, yearn for the freedom to follow their dreams, and who remain optimistic regardless of the difficult circumstances they are living in.
