Places of Observation
This is one of the four volume book composed
of four cases having titles Places of expecting,
Places of sheltering, Places of feeling. Inside
the cases there are collections of camera obscura
photographs copied 1:1 (4 x 5 inches). There are
about 10 photographs in each case placed behind
the glass, covered with black canvas with a comment
written on it. All were made while wandering around
Mediterranean Sea and in some sites in Poland.
A careful viewer investigates in which case a
certain photograph should be found thus creating
his order. A new reader deconstructs the settlements
of his predecessor.
