Story

Series of photos produces each in another country in last few years. Each final photo is made out of 20 individual travel cliché snapshots (made by me). I was trying to achieve generalized images of the countries and see the differences that can be seen on them. I am trying to see how abstract I get in order that the viewer still recognizes the main motive(s). I am also exploring a (new) way of seeing. When I am showing the photos to the viewers I am also observing their response. They are usually quite satisfied after they recognise the country where the original photos have been made. They can recognise this based on their own travel experiences or just by collective knowledge gathered from the media. On the pictures they can recognise only things that they have known before.
