For mass-media

Any project that comes to my mind is seen within the theoretical and technical framework of a specific genre. Whatever my idea is, I never feel indifferent towards the medium I choose for embodying it, — whether it’s a novel, film, installation or a series of photographs. For me the truth about a work of art lies in the relation between meaning and form, i.e. what material and technique am I using. The result of this conduct is usually experiment and research. This is why moving from the very core of such a sphere as photography I reach its outward limits, its boundaries, where it relates to such a sphere as, let’s say, cinema.

All the works exhibited here demonstrate that photography and cinema use the same substance: silver film. I insist on regarding all these images as authentic photographs, since they can’t be anything else, even if moving pictures create one particular form of dialogue with the audience, while still pictures — another.

There is one common feature uniting photography and cinema, which I always felt fascinated with. And I don’t mean the ease of reproduction. It is the fact that they can be projected: for the first time in the history of art an image can be removed from its traditional material and acquire independence. Carried by their own light, the pictures can appear anywhere, on whatever screen. I like to study this space, where photo and movie images meet: a world lighted by pictures.
