Stones are a photographic triptych of Witek Orski. Photographs were created by assembling sixteen takes of a single stone, thus interfering with the option of reading its scale or depth. Orski examines relations between the eye, camera, and surface of the image. He draws the viewer’s attention to the photograph itself, usually perceived as a transparent medium. He further distorts perception of the presentation by toying with properties of the matter: photographed stones covered with a layer of olive oil resemble soft and moist pieces of meat. Thus created organicity is confronted with an analytical, dry, laboratory-like image.
Medium: archival photographic prints on Hahnemulle FineArt Matt paper
