The amusement park series is a metaphor for modern society, where omnipresent entertainment cannot evict the loneliness that surrounds us. The images have a surreal touch. With their red and cyan color renderings they almost look like a comic strip or a graphic novel. Spinning carnival rides, illuminated booths and stands are all set and ready to entertain the crowds- but no one seems to come. Seems like the next super hero has to show up and take care of this eerie situation…
This is where photography started in its early stage. Questions were raised back then about the identity of this new technique: is this just a technical gimmick? Is it a reflection of reality, a serious art form? It took decades for photography to prove itself to be more than just a means of documentation.
When I started taking stereo photos, I found myself facing the same question: is this more than just an ephemeral technical gimmick? Is it really adding depth to the image, in every sense of the word? The amusement park series is an ironic self-reflection on these questions.
