What is there and what is it like? These are the basic questions of metaphysics. We all have a certain way of perceiving the world - both as human beings and as individuals. But the world can be comprehended in many other ways, too, regarding the properties of objects, cause and effect or space and time. There can be countless possibilities that we might not be aware of at all because of restrictions in our own understanding.

These images attempt to see the world in an alternative way. They stretch our perception of time and try to emphasize the relativity of it through long exposures. They challenge the way we observe the properties of objects through vague and mingled colors. They juxtapose present and past by witnessing fleeting moments on the historical venues. They try to ask metaphysical questions by the means of photography.
