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.
