Title: Lost, Found and Seen

About the Photo:

The shown pictures represent the question of what remains of cities, what persists. Which buildings will still be spellbound in the future. Do man still admires the structure of old masonry stones when cars drive without wheels?When is the modern recognized as cultural legacies?What will remain from our here and now… light and shadow and the stories that will never change?
Digital archived individual works found during a research on this topic, served as a basis for the illustrated photographic collages. Material from their heydays transferred into the digital world. A
game between analog and digital, one-time jump which creates of a new surreal world and generates a look into a new reality. Thus, the shown space plays a role as a period of time as well as an optically experiential space that creates a stage for stories from the wise men of the past through the present into the future in which cars floating through the neighborhood and the noise of the street belongs to the past.
There is the image created with a simple camera and on the other hand, the almost unlimited possibilities of digital manipulation and their Pitfalls. The pictures give an insight into everyday scenes of gone days and serve as a primer for new stories, thus violating any privacy, playing with the look and the lifestyle of bygone times. Projections of our time in the context of our cultural and architecture history with the time of our fathers and grandfathers.
