Anna Gadalen creative residency project, “The universes we create”, fundamentally consisted in showcasing the connectedness to oneself, nature, and each other through a series of photographs featuring couples and families at Zūnya, their daily routines, or the activities they enjoy.
Through her photography, Ana Paula explores the workings of the natural universe, the nourishing powers of creativity and memory, and our ever-evolving quest to break away from our linear understanding of life and find a sense of wholeness. In this interview, she shares with us the beginning of her journey, her sources of inspiration, and the new directions she is currently exploring through her work.
One of our most recent residents, Portrait photographer Ana Hop, traveled to Costa Rica to immerse herself in nature and learn about different ways of life. Inspired by her subjects and the parts of themselves they hide from the world, Ana’s work is centered around dark and moody lighting that tells a new story.
These snapshots of our reality at Zunya are the untold story that hides beneath the surface. It is a tale of co-creating something new, based upon the principles of communal living and shared experiences.
Artists, creatives, all of you with a story to share. We would love to publish your thoughts.
