The preference for black and white and a non spatial perspective comes from a sort of weariness. Of the mundane scenes that photo walks are offering, of the visual noise of the urban environment that I now depend on. This mixed bag of images of bricks and stones and memories of past landscapes, tied together by a layer of monochrome, somehow feels appropriate for this timeframe: a blur of successive days that I can hardly tell apart, causing a sort of meditative, detachted state of mind. A world coming to a stand still, while time is accelatering, leaving not much of a trace.
This series was conceived, shot and/or edited in the pandemic winter of 2020 – 2021.
