from fern (far) + weh (pain).

            Literally, “far pain” or “far sickness”, as contrasted with heimweh (homesickness, longing for home).

            Fernweh was coined during the German Romanticism and refers to the nostalgia for places that have not yet been known and the melancholy for always staying in the same place.

            FERNWEH is a project about masculinity, loneliness and self-isolation, and how these three elements intertwine and feed of each other.

            The work presented here portrays the reality of a young migrant overtaken by the modern world, someone poisoned by the desire to flee further and further away, without ever achieving it.
