Without realizing it, we settle for living prefabricated images, subtly inserted by the media and society in a collective
déjà vu. The human being becomes a manipulated product...and inevitably its own ability to distinguish true from
false becomes just another manipulation - reaching a point where the life and the lies melt and merge in an endless loop
we are trapped in.
The images of this project are presented in a diptych form:
At the one side is the original movie scene [Ref 1] showing the actors playing to be a photographers; at the other side
is the photograph they supposedly did. The last ones were staged and taken by me, joining the game to confuse a lie for
the truth ...or maybe the other way around ? the truth for a lie...
At the same time I'm also in front of the camera in all the photographs - crossing from the one side to the other over and over
again without chance to escape.
