Imaginary Voyage

 

 

 

“Imaginary Voyage”

Life itself is the image

I am interested in spiritual matters. I am interested in the nature of my feelings.

My personal photographic project: “ Imaginary voyage” is mainly using a metaphorical

method and ambiguous, poetic way to express the natural personal desires and drifts,

through engaging processes that place these desires into the natural world. It follows its own

dreamlike logic.

My wish is to give viewers time to rethink the act of seeing, and to see the ambiguity within

the deceptively simple act of “seeing things as they are.”

 

The series evolves into different sequential elements , which are water, watercolor, painted

petals, myself and myself portrayed in the photos drifting in the water world.

The project focuses on my self-awareness, self identity and belonging. Concerns for personal

emotions, freedom and the liberation of the inner self.

I shot what I feel and I shot my own self-portrait, wrote down why I took it and what I felt in

doing it…. Sometimes what I want to tell is not obvious, and other times the viewer is left

with his own interpretation.

 

 

 

Imaging….

If its not there, we write it down.

If its not there, we hand it over to our imagination.

 

 

 

 

I exist in my dream

Myself through a voyage… the colors, the water

the fragments of petals…25

 

 

 

I find myself in the water in the air

Can you see me

Can you feel I exist

Are we related…

 

 

I will follow the wake in the air, the fragrant wave

from petals, the trail on the water, the mirage in

the dark nights…

 

I wish to hunt myself down, to struggle with

Myself

Myself after a voyage

Myself in an illusion

Myself in reality

Myself through double layers

Myself through the fluid water

Myself as seen through your eyes, your         i28

Imagination

Who I really am and who I am supposed to be.
