RE OR G
It all depends on how we look at things,
and not how they are in themselves
I understand photography as a way to step through the looking-glass. Inspired by old stories and myths, I seek hidden-in-plain-sight characters and patterns. For me, inviting images in the camera chamber is, in reference to depth psychology, a work of active imagination. Once there, the delineation between object and subject blurs. Both the photographer and what is being photographed self-consciously manifest their subjectivity: are images collected, mediated or psychologically projected ?
Fall 2019 Exhibition
[ Where? ]
Jean Gebser Society Symposium, October 10-13, Asilomar Conference Center, California
Inspired by the wine concept of Terroir, and my experience moving from Europe to the New World, I am presenting a series of images related to the sense of place. This exhibition explores the emotional and atemporal dimension stemming from a location, the (re)connection with nature and with otherness.
