Prastiit Sthapit, Hidden Places, Jyväskylä 2013
This is too beautiful. Disgustingly beautiful. In the haze of this picturesque postcard, blended with cheesy quotes about nature or god- I seek silence. That is my aim. I seek my own world, far from reality, far from dreams I have had. A new place that will exist in this paper and in my mind's eye.
I want to bring you closer with the help of those liars - words. But then again, images lie, light is a liar. Truth is what you make of the lies put together.
I would rather tell you my lies than have you believe in 'reality'.
Part of Prasiit Sthapit's series Hidden Places will be shown in the Kirkkopuisto Photo Annual opening on Thursday September 26th at 6:30pm.
