“Melquiades’ Camera” is a journey to rural, suburban areas, questing for peculiarly important places of local community, usually not accessible for newcomers “from outside”. These locations become scenes of staged, ambiguous situations, inspired, among others, by 19th century photographs of cities and rural views. Such strange dualism of staged relations in social space, is closely related to evolution of medium of photography, connected to one’s sense of discovering the new visual reality, which was usually a creation of newcomer-photographer.

My aim was to obtain similar atmosphere, where apparent natural arrangement of figures is actually staged, almost theatrical production.

With no doubt it’s also a work about incredible device, that sees so differently than human’s eye, work related to the experience of something that for photography is original but present at the same time - as daguerreotype nowadays becomes one of contemporary forms of imaging.
