‘Home is where the heart is’ the famous saying goes. But sometimes, you often wonder what is beyond the picket fences. What is beyond the tall trees, beyond the endless ocean, within those cities of concrete.
You tend to wonder.
And so whether to stay put at home where things are familiar and comfortable or to go out and venture into the unknown can leave you feeling both restless and idle, especially when you’re young.
Hello! My name is Melchi Dompreh and this is my series of ‘Loud Whispers’. My Poetic Journal through film. Having the opportunity to present this project has really helped me hone in and focus on a meaningful collection of images that embodies this series.
This series visually illustrates the struggles and inner turmoil a young person can face in this world. When it comes to figuring out what one should do with his or her life, the transition from adolescent comforts into adulthood can be daunting.
And at times, one can feel lost as they wander aimlessly, trying to find a reason to move forward, whilst they come face to face with the harsh realities that exist within this world.
