Daffodil" by Bahadir Aksan is the winner of the Self Publish Riga 2018 Dummy Contest.


“With my photographs I try to narrate the death of youth, just like those cemetery daffodils as was regarded by the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. I want to place emphasis on ageing, on slowing down, on melancholy, isolation, and confusion, on the awareness of our own farewell - surely one of the most painful concerns - and, in contrast, also on small moments of happiness: the soul’s resistance to death.” — Bahadir Aksan
