Visual artist Margreet Kramer’s camera focuses, often literally, on daily rituals and their meaning.
Themes such as the masses versus the individual and human vulnerability play a defining role in her work.
The film SYMBOLS OF LUCK shows us symbols of luck from various cultures. For the Armenian people, the pomegranate is an important symbol of luck.
