Venice

Simply about the impossible

These are the photographs of the chronological nonlinearity. They instantly transform worldwide famous tourist highlights into something surreal and credibly described with the means of non-Euclidean geometry.
It is a glance from altered dimension. Venice appears to be a descendant of unknown islands and lagoons. The secret curls of its channels and narrow lanes become even more disorienting and mystifying. Sea waves turn into impossible salty foam splashes whereas gondoliers' figures remain unaffected.
Unique author's shooting technology allows to compress a whole ductile time period in one artwork, and at the same time explicitly demonstrates every precise moment. Photographs represent us fictional and intriguing blend of modernity and Middle Ages extract. It is all here and now.
Such concept collocates well with the Kurt Vonnegut's ideas brought in «Slaughterhouse Five»: "All time is all time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is. Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I've said before, bugs in amber."
With the help of these authentic pictures we have a chance to experience reality in multiple dimensions, id est we grant total access to Venetian past, present, and future and are able to perceive any point in timeline with all of its accidents and regularities.
