PLACE IS NOT IMPORTANT (2008-2012)


50 photographs, all works: 15,6cm x 15,6cm, pigment print, most works: edition 3 + 1 AP.



For the project "Place is not important", I collected my motifs in three different locations - Paris, Odessa and Istanbul.

Those images don´t correspond to the usual stereotypes of those places and offer a high degree on interchangeability.

The photographs should not reflect the place, but transfer some location-independence. The images, taken with Rolleiflex SL 66 film-camera, show quite normal situations, which can be found on different locations in the world.
