Comes without framing!About:What is real? What can be real? Should we trust our Mind? Should we trustphotography?My works are concepts of perception. In our Mind a hallucination triggers the same areasas a real perception, telling the mind there is no difference between the real and the “notreal”. Photography used to be an indicator of something “real”. Today both cannot betrusted. We know too much about the mind and the possible technics in photomanipulation.These are the topics that interest me. Working with the mind, with hallucinations, withdisorders in the brain. To see what is happening when the mind works differently from“the norm” when it shows us a parallel world.This I try to accomplish trough photography. Without any manipulation of the image afterit has been taken. In this series, I have used an old Box Camera from 1905 to capture theGhost of Görlitz.It was not easy to accomplish. But after a long journey and steady research in thearchives of this very old city, I managed to capture some images of the fragile thing in itsnatural surroundings.
