Just like that, 100 years later, technology took a backseat and humanity returned. The beauty of the world survived and we returned to simpler times. Traditions remained and we realized they may never go away.


Monaris is a photographer with a passion for visual storytelling. As an Adobe Lightroom and Sony Ambassador, she has developed a distinct creative style focused on composition and color theory that lives to transform brief instances of reality into movie-like scenes.
