Through the practice of wandering, I am attentive to the disruptions in our daily environments and ephemeral moments. I concentrate my attention on urban objects, details or people that seem banal at first but in which I perceive a form of error and a kind of divergence. 

My images contain abandoned, hand-made, DIY, and ephemeral objects that I collect with my camera. Through framing and sometimes staging, the photography brings out the singular, visual, and sculptural presence of these situations often produced by the randomness of human interventions. I see beauty, sense, and humour in small, almost invisible things that we tend to overlook. 

The things are not as they seem to be.

The Netherlands-based Ukrainian photographer Alex Blanco is a seasoned visual storyteller. Her 2016-2019 project is a utopian rendering of her parents in their home city of Odessa, “where the real overlaps with the surreal and everyone was born to shine”. Holding true to this notion, she created intimate and atmospheric shots that helped her reconnect with her family.
1989. China. Czechoslovakia. One meeting place – Moscow. Linda Zhengová’s photo series captures the artist’s complicated family history. Be it living under different communist regimes thousands of kilometers apart, the inherent cultural differences, or even their eventual separation, the KULISHEK series create an intimate narrative of a family forged and fragmented in a globalizing world.
Izraeli photographer and graphic designer Omer Ga'ash creates digitally manipulated composites that treat “the place and the body as a symbiotic system.” Omer's ten-year experience with professional dancing visibly reflects in his work, via a nearly tangible understanding of the possibilities and limits of the body.
Swiss photographer Roger Weiss manipulates our stereotypical perception of bodily beauty via unusual angles and digital distortion to create sculptural, clay-like figures with accentuated and distorted extremities that invite us to untangle and sort them out in our mind. With all redundancy and personality removed, Weiss sees the flesh revert to its ancient raw symbolism.
