MODEL OF REALITY
Simple can be beautiful and in these vigorously minimalist images from polish photographer Edyta Dufaj (1988), that simplicity is applied to question our acceptance of reality. At first the images appear as though documenting fantastical situations she has discovered… yet the eye aches when faced with the images, belying the truth. The vast expanses of void, and negative space which frame the fragments of reality shrink and minimise them enshrouding then with blank slates and uncertainty. Wind turbines stand like flowers against the vast blue sky and solitary trees stand against monoliths covered in ivy, how much of these situations are objective and how much constructed?
