image and text by
from the series: “Ilgas”
My aim in photographing the Ilgas series was,
by drawing on the characteristic language of documentary photography,
to reveal the documentary narration and create images
that can be interpreted by using a wide range of meaning constructions
from the viewer’s past experience.
For me, this series does not function
as a construction of a particular documentary narration,
but is more of a deconstruction and negation
of traditional clichés of documentary photography (suffering, lust and menace).
