"Through the practice of wandering, I am attentive to the disruptions in our daily environments and ephemeral moments." Exclusive photo series by Czech born artist Julie Hrnčířová.

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.
