Layers of truths and meanings reveal themselves once the moment passes and transforms into a memory connected to other emotional impressions. Despite having facts and timelines, making sense of the past is a puzzle game with no reference picture, and the longer the existing pieces are contemplated, the more new ones are added.
Secrets, boundaries, fairy tale archetypes, adulthood and search for meaning are all embedded and interconnected in this series of silver gelatin darkroom prints.
What We Know Nothing About is a direct continuation of previous At Home image series, forming another chapter of a visual autobiography.

The images are a continuous discovery of meaning and value of the everydayness, of objects and episodes being both mundane and metaphoric, torn out of the world and made into independent substantial entities, fragments of a personal journey indicating moments of emotional resonance with the ordinary.
Reproductions of original selenium-toned silver gelatin prints.
A moment lost in time, a place lost in space, an object once meaningful left behind and forgotten.
Nonexistent when unobserved, suddenly becoming substantial, finding its new life inside a frame.
