Eva Szombat / Practitioners

I’ve been interested in happiness for a long time. How do we reach it, how do we maintain it? Can anyone be happy? What are the chances for those, who aren’t predestined for happiness? With my photobook Practitioners, I was looking for people, who take an active role in increasing their feeling of happiness. Erika lost her child, but found help in balloon twisting. Maria claims her passion for collecting frogs helped cure her cancer.

Some people find happiness after gender reassignment surgery, some find it when keeping pets, but even a rubber crocodile can be its source. Constantly practicing is the key.

The book has five chapters: Togetherness, Hobbies, Pets, Self-realization and Home.
