Hope in the Middle of Darkness, 2021, photography, represents survival. Throughout the ages, humanity has survived many disasters. Yet we stood up, there was continuity of life. Ramia wants to remind us that even though we were prisoners of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was still the light of hope in each of us. She wants her art to inspire people to live in the moment, to not be afraid of the future nor to be captured in the past: “each day has its blessing moments that we will never get back again”.
