Concrete passages about closeness and coldness… and a couple of songs.
A poetic photo series about relationships.
The story taking place in a grey concrete space is like strolling amongst the pieces of a contemporary opera set. Interludes span between the main scenes, in this case they are smaller abstract compositions, which I call ‘songs’. Thus these abstract elements positioned between the happenings of figural pictures get filled up with different emotions, which rolls the story on to other emotive qualities. It is just like the songs in musicals or the instrumental music between two acts in the classical theatre. Geometric patterns draw the story as they return from image to image and this way help to establish coherence in the series.
Despite the pictorial impression we can peer into the smallest details and we will meet concrete realistic photography, because all things are real. I do not use montage technique or any other digital tricks.
The third formal element is a diptych, in which case I shot the same space from two different points of view. One pair of photos was taken at the same moment.
The series is an investigation on the connections of space, time and subjective reality through the relations of human kind.
