Scene of silence
This monochromatic series was created while I was visiting Madeira this year.
I called my project ‘Scene of silence’ to refer to characteristic void which accompany us while we watch a silent movie. Certainly, when looking at a photograph we cannot physically retrace any sounds, which quite often were an inseparable part of the captured moment. In this case, natural phenomena appear here muted and motionless, presenting only their visual potential. In a nutshell, photography is a still image. However, due to our imagination and previous experiences, the picture can provide an external stimulus to senses. As somebody said: ‘photography is like the art of frozen time… the ability to store emotions and feelings within a frame’.
