Project “CONNECTED” – A portrait movement with Nadia Meli

May we never forget the ability to see the beauty in the rubble

When the world started changing, or better…, when the world stopped, because of a pandemic, many around the world experienced something they have never experienced in their lifetimes. They had to stay inside. Lock Down’s were put in places all over the world to help stop the spread of the virus. Well, we are nearing the end of 2020 and things have changed a little bit in parts of the world and in others not so much. 

When it all started, my friend and amazing photographer Nadia Meli had the brilliant idea to show the people in their homes, behind their windows and walls to bring to light their wishes, fears and anticipations of this season 2020. Through technology and all the different video call services, she was able to pull this off. It made us all feel more connected.

I had the amazing opportunity to be part of this project she called “CONNECTED” : 


With Love, Vik



Hey, you made it all the way to this part of the website. Congratulations 🙂 and thank you for scrolling this far. 

I thought I’d take the opportunity and tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Viktor Penner (that name that keeps on coming up here, lol, but it’s my website so that’s an obvious). I wanted to create a space where I can let you into my life on a more personal level maybe, and a blog section seems to be a cool place for that. 

I will be writing about songs I am currently working on, or songs I’ve written and the story behind them. I will take you on a journey where I’ll show photos I shot, places I’ve visited and the thoughts and stories behind them. When I have thoughts and ideas which I am pondering, I will share them here and you can be inspired or be challenged alongside me on this journey.   

I would love to hear from you in the comment section below, or when you find yourself in the bottomless hole of the internet clicking your way forward to my social media platforms (the INSTA, Facebook you know..?). Or just drop me a message in the contact section. I would love to hear from you.   

I am 34 years old and this is the 4th country I’ve been living in. I live in the States. I’ve been playing the piano since I was 8 and I love to dabble in (mostly) iPhone photography.   

I am continuing to make music the focus of this website but while I am working on releasing music hopefully soon, I will keep this an all around creative experience. 

I hope I hear from you soon and maybe we’ll even meet one day – which I would always prefer. 

Keep your eyes open, stay healthy in this C-19 time we are living in and keep creating. 

You were made to create.
