Photo series 'Same But Different' is a personal photo project that I took on, when global pandemic was declared in March 2020, and the first lockdown in Switzerland began. Imposed restrictions, self-isolation, uncertainty and fear of the unknown altered our world dramatically, bringing on a lot of difficult feelings. As the world stood still, photography proved to be a great source of solace and inspiration. Documenting my immediate surroundings – at home or on my regular bike outings in Basel – helped me get out of my head and thinking, and into my body and sensing, grounding me into the here and now. Creating my own safe space, I found beauty in everyday objects and ordinary scenes that are otherwise easily forgettable. Photos of familiar, yet guarded encounters demonstrate my own effort to make peace with the things I cannot control.
