Entry Description

UNTITLED explores the human impact on the land, the interaction between mind and space. Studying popular beaches, crowded summer spots, in the off-season and only at night, it reveals a less observed aspect of leisure culture. Yet, focusing on the tension between reality and abstract, it uses purely photographic practices as tools of defamiliarization and dislocation.
