The most important moments in life are often just the ones that never happened. The Beautiful Accidents series elaborates on this narrative and maps the narrow line between aesthetic beauty and the fateful event. These deliberately visually unfinished stories seek the boundary between visual appeal and a dramatic scene that can change human life in an instant. The attempt is to find out to what extent can be aestheticized the accident that the viewer witnesses and thus becomes a part of it.
