Stranger Project

April 9, 2010 § 4 Comments


Look out for the forthcoming interview about my practice in the Hub Magazine ;http://thehub.c-hab.com

Check out my Interview with author of the pinhole camera; Brian J. Kummel http://www.thepinholecamera.com/blog.cfm

The stranger project.

This project consists of  images that are made by using mail art and pinhole photography, to examine the role of the `stranger` in society and why we are interested in people we don’t know. These images show chance encounters and intimate double exposure visual portraits,of people who have not met in person and only meet by the mediated gaze of the pinhole camera.I take a portrait of myself then randomly pick an address from a telephone directory,send it to this address and the recipient does the same.

These portraits relate to the  way we remotely interact with others in the information age.The etheral images presented in this body of work  have Anonymous feeling and spiritual presence,two humans doing same act merging physiognomical features and gazes in one exposure.
