2000 MILES (and thirteen years)

16 mm film, 1997, Dur. 7 min 38. sec

 

  Photography as the looking glass, through which there is a gate to a wonder land of time and space travel. A photographer is turned into a living photograph by his camera – two dimensional being in a three dimensional world. This fragmented universe has no longer a unified single point perspective, nor is it dualistic mirror reflection of two parallel worlds – it is a multi-layered collage of life at various levels. Distorted, made up between fantasy and reality, it re-addresses the use of photography to reproduce not reality itself but a desired version of it. The haunted landscapes can become a refuge and a labyrinth, an escape route and a trap. Yet crossing the line remained beyond reach.
