The effect of mass migrations has been the creation of radically new types of human being: people who root themselves in ideas rather than places, in memories as much in material things; people who have been obliged to define themselves – because they are so defined by others – by their otherness; people in whose deepest selves strange fusions occur, unprecedented unions between what they were and where they find themselves.

(Salman Rushdie, Imaginary Homelands)

I travel from place to place, from country to country. They are different yet the same. Light enters the space and melts into flesh and the most significant memories turns out to be veins pulsing on arms. Pores of skin, flaws and marks, texture of hair and fabric, patterns of shadows. Tiny apartments, suburban landscapes, parks appearing like tropical forests only a handful of meters from a highway. For a split second when the shutter clicks I’m in the control. For a split second I lull myself into believing that they belong to me, longing to become another, before they slip out of my reach, turn away, harden their backs, already lost even before the very first picture was taken.

By photographing people around me I draw internal maps of countries of the mind, of memory and my personal history, searching for emotional attachment and intimacy with the world that surrounds me.

Life in Japan

Posted in dear diary, Japan, photography studies by evitagoze on June 23, 2012

I could swear that time in Japan goes much faster than in the other side of globe. My most used sentences are not “I don’t understand” and “Weird..” anymore. I recognise more and more faces in university and have even started to remember Japanese personal names. I can understand, hmm .. let me think, maybe about hundred words in Japanese (counting till ten, weekdays and months of the year included. Yes, I’m ashamed!). I live from rice and I’m addicted to japanese sweet daifuku mochi (have to mention green tea kitkats as well. However, they seem to have disappeared from earth since the beginning of May). Japan has the most exciting second hand shops I have ever seen and the loudest frogs.

There are only two weeks left till our exhibition opening and only five till the day when I have to go to airport to fly back to England. I spend most of my days between university and home. Learning, reading, writing, taking pictures, fighting with mosquitos and counting millimeters and struggling with dust in the darkroom.

Unfortunately I can’t share any of my work here yet as it all is on paper, not digital, because I don’t have any possibility to scan my negatives in university, but I’ll work on that when I’m back in Europe. Japan probably is the most expensive country where to do analog photography.
