‘On dichotomies’ is a visual reflection on the omnipresent phenomenon of binary oppositions. It originates in the simple realisation that the nature of dichotomous pairs, which I often understood as divisive and antagonistic, is in fact harmonious and complementary.
In this body of work, I revisit my perception of the seemingly conflicting entities and explore the balance and synergy between them. I focus in particular on dualities intrinsic to the photographic medium which inspired the idea for this project and determined its final outcome.
The images, created in the language of abstract forms and various experimental photographic techniques, tell a story about the coexistence of the analogue and digital, physical and virtual, organic and geometric, human and non-human, and many more dichotomous configurations which make up our contemporary world.
It is a story that challenges what is real and exposes the relativity and fluidity of everything. A story that reveals the genius of chance and accident, and shows the beauty of light manifesting its presence as pure blackness. It is also a tale of desire to see the unseen, and the joy from letting it be visible
