DISTRESS OF BUCHAREST
dérive [literally: “drifting”], a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiances
To change the memories of others. Steering them in another direction and put them in another mood. For this project I browsed through the city of Bucharest on varies of days and always collected 2-4 old analog pictures or postcards. I imagined the moment those were shot and either tried to maximize the kind of hidden feeling an image gave me or totally changed it to another subtext with just a few sentences. Important for me was the realization, how much you can falsify a story and give a stranger such a different impression of the happenings. We trust the words which are linked to images and most likely won’t question the facts at all.
